Pendulum Energy Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian, Mario Belloni, and Anne Cox
content provider: Barbara Christian

The EJS Pendulum Energy Model shows a pendulum and associated energy bar charts. Users can change the initial starting point of the pendulum.

The Pendulum Energy 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_middle_school_teacher_PendulumEnergy.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  The user can modify this simulation if EJS is installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
