  1. physical pendulum

    A physical pendulum is a type of pendulum where the object can be a solid rod, a bat, a disc or any other irregular shaped body that swings back and forth around its pivot point under the influence of gravity. This pendulum doesn't necessarily have to swing from an attached string or wire. Its center of mass and shape end up influencing the period of its swing, which is the time it takes to complete one full back-and-forth motion.
