Java Applet showing the displacement, velocity, tangential acceleration, force and energy variations with time of a simple pendulum.
A java animation that shows a pendulum moving with plots for kinetic and potential energy. Mass, length, gravity and period can be adjusted
Applets showing pendulum motion. Applets suitable for an advanced school student but the maths is higher level.
The derivation of the period of oscillation of a physical pendulum along with interactive calculations to consolidate understanding.
Entry in Smithsonian's encyclopaedia about Foucault's pendulum which showed the Earth was rotating.
Comprehensive webpage on Foucault's pendulum, with animations, videos and answers to questions you might have.
A simple pendulum is one which can be considered to be a point mass suspended from a string or rod of negligible mass.
Video looking at Foucault's pendulum and how we know the world is spinning.
What is a Foucault Pendulum and how does it work. Find out here.
The ballistic pendulum is a classic example of a dissipative collision in which conservation of momentum can be used for analysis, but conservation of energy during the collision cannot be invoked ...
