Find out everything from how Foucault invented the pendulum to why they prove the earth rotates. Very well presented.
Excellent animations proving assorted points about the simple harmonic motion approximation for pendulums.
A simple experiment showing how two swinging pendulums trade energy.
Two experiments to involving pendulums.
Simple Pendulum simulator. Users can vary amplitude, mass, length and gravity of the system to see how it changes the time it takes the pendulum to swing (period).
A brief description of how Pendulum Clocks work. This site is part of Marshall Brain's HowStuffWorks.com. Nice experiment to show how to make and improve pendulum clocks.
Discussion of pendulum fairground rides that act a lot like swings.
The site gives a displacement of a simple pendulum and the effect it have on motion when displaced.
This applet shows the response of a driven pendulum.
The animation is of a simple pendulum. It's length, the acceleration due to gravity and the starting point of the oscillation can be changed.
