The Two Springs and Pendulum model compares the motion of one block that oscillates on a horizontal spring to a second block on another spring and to the motion of a simple pendulum.

The Two Springs and Pendulum model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_bu_Two_Springs_and_Pendulum.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
