Formula to calculate the length of time for a pendlum of a given length to move once from left to right.
CANADIAN WORKSHOP Apr 1986 (v.9#7) pg. 8

Build an executive game of swinging balls. Five 1" ball bearings are suspended from a wooden frame. Swinging balls demonstrate Newton's Third Law of Motion, "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction".
