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
Swings and the flying trapeze are examples of one of the classic problems of physics: the pendulum. This page covers this comparison in detail.
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.
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.
