# Conical Pendulum Calculator

A simple Conical Pendulum Calculator to find the horizontal pendulum period. In a simple pendulum, when the bob rotates to and from, it forms a horizontal circular motion, which then leads to form a conical shape. Hence, it is also known as conical pendulum. This Horizontal Pendulum Period Calculator is used to find the period of the horizontal circular motion. When constant horizontal force acts, the time period becomes constant whereas its equilibrium position will be changed.

#### Formula:

H = Π x √(l / g x Cos(i))
**Where,**
H = Horizontal Pendulum Period
l = Length of Pendulum
g = Gravity
i = Angle
### Example:

What is the period of horizontal pendulum, when a pendulum oscillates with an angle of 65°, length of 12 mm, and gravity of 9.8 m/s

#### Solution:

H = I x √(l / g x Cos(i))

= 12 x √(12 / 9.8 x Cos(65))

= 2.2614

The conical pendulum was first studied by Robert Hooke, an English scientist for the orbital planet motion model.
