#### Question

The period of a conical pendulum in terms of its length (l), semivertical angle (θ) and acceleration due to gravity (g) is:

(a)`1/(2pi)sqrt((l costheta)/g)`

(b)`1/(2pi)sqrt((l sintheta)/g)`

(c)`4pisqrt((lcostheta)/(4g))`

(d)`4pisqrt((l tantheta)/g)`

#### Solution

The time period of a conical pendulum is

`T=4pisqrt((lcostheta)/(4g))=2pisqrt((lcostheta)/g)`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
