Explanation:

The axis of the Earth is currently 23.5 degrees. Over a 41,000 year cycle the axis angle of the Earth varies from 22.5-24.5 (don't quote me on those decimals). This is due to the fact that the sun is not the only large body exerting gravity on the Earth. The other planets all have an effect, and the current orbit around the sun is the end result, but all those forces applies torque to the Earth that gives it it's oscillation.

A spring balance has a scale that reads from 0 to 50 kg.The length of the scale is 20 cm.A block of mass m is suspended from this balance,when displaced and released,it oscillates with a period 0.5 s. What is the value of m?[$g=10m{s}^{-2}$]

How do you determine the amplitude, period and vertical translation of $y+2=4\mathrm{cos}(\frac{x}{2})$?

As time period doesnot depend on amplitude so then why it is said that in measurement of time period amplitude must be kept small and also that amplitude must be zero ?
