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 ...
MyPhysicsLab hosts a variety of interactive physics simulations like pendulums, roller coasters, colliding blocks, springs, etc. with graphs, source code, and full explanation of the physics and ...
This mathematical essay describes the fractals generated by the nonlinear pendulum and iterated contraction maps. Including information on the butterfly effect.
Java Applet showing the extension, velocity, acceleration, force and energy variations with time of a mass on a spring
Many features of the dynamics of free electron lasers can be understood using a simple pendulum model. This site uses JAVA applets to demonstrate this.
Swings and the flying trapeze are examples of one of the classic problems of physics: the pendulum. This page covers this comparison in detail.
Simple Pendulum and mass-on-spring - change gravity and other variables to see effect on period of oscillation. Good alternative to "real" experiment. Subscription required but with 30 day free trial.
A look at the physics behind simple harmonic oscillation which happens almost everywhere.
