We present a method for determining the uncertainty in the measurement of parameters that describe the dynamics of a Foucault´s pendulum. In the document, we review how these parameters can be obtained. Then, we propose a method for evaluating the uncertainty in their determination. We illustrate the method with experimentation made on a 28m height pendulum located at 20° 35´ north latitude.
