Kater's Reversible Pendulum

The Kater's Reversible Pendulum is a special form of physical pendulum designed to determine the acceleration in response to gravity. The pendulum rod has two fulcras as well as one sliding and one fixed disc to adjust the period of oscillation. The pendulum should swing around both fulcra with the same period of oscillation and is suspended from low-friction need bearings on a  highly stable support. Two adjustment screws and a spirit level ensure the orientation can be adjusted and kept level.
