Just wondering when considering a compound pendulum why the graph of T^2 against L would have a non linear relationship.
Is it to do with the fact that a compound pendulum has a different relationship between T and L than a simple pendulum does.
(with L being the distance between the pivot point and the centre of mass of the object in question).
