You can perform an interesting activity when you visit a park to ride a swing. You will require a watch. Make the swing oscillate without anyone sitting on it. Find its time period in the same way as you did for the pendulum. Make sure that there are no jerks in the motion of the swing. Ask one of your friends to sit on the swing. Push it once and let it swing naturally. Again measure its time period.
Repeat the activity with different persons sitting on the swing. Compare the time period of the swing measured in different cases. What conclusions do you draw from this activity?

Dear Student ,
Look as the time period of a simple pendulum depends on the length of the oscillator and the acceleration due to gravity .So applying different masses on the pendulum or persons with different mass time period of swinging slinky won't change .
We can conclude that the time period of a pendulum depends on the acceleration due to gravity and length of the thread so keeping those constant the time period of the simple pendulum will remain as constant .
