manufacturing technician interview questions shared by candidates
They had a picture of a two clocks one with a short pendulum one with a long pendulum they asked which one runs faster...
Well the fact that when they make a clock they make it to run properly not to run fast or slow no matter the size of the pendulum if the clock was designed with a short pendulum it would run the same speed as a clock designed with a long pendulum... now if someone swapped a long pendulum with a short one on a clock designed to run with a long pendulum it would run faster and if they did the opposite spawning a long pendulum onto a clock designed for a short pendulum it would run slow... but they had three answers, the short one, the long one or they both run at the same speed... I chose to inturpret the clocks as being made correctly and not someone screwing with their pendulums so I chose they both run at the same speed... I'm guessing they wanted the answe the short pendulum one runs faster but that's makes one jump to the conclusion someone's tampered with them... but sadly dry didn't give any blank spaces to explain answers...
If the only difference in the images is the length of the pendulum, then that's all you can say has changed, so you answer as if the clocks are identical with exception of the pendulum length.
It's basic physics. The shorter pendulum swings more quickly.
