By what percentage should a pendulum's length be shortened so that the time period decreases from 2t to t seconds.
The period of oscillation of a pendulum is given by the formula T = 2*pi*sqrt( L / g) where, L is the length of the pendulum and g is the acceleration due to gravity.
In the given problem the...
