The Magnetic Pendulum
written by Junaid Alam and Muhammad Sabieh Anwar
A pendulum is a simple systems in terms of its mathematical basis and the range of fields of science that it can relate to. With slight modifications, it can exhibit insightful phenomena, chaos being one of them. In this experiment, we explore the notion of chaotic dynamics using a "magnetic pendulum."
