This page is an animated tutorial featuring a simple pendulum attached to a pivot point by a string. The pendulum motion is accompanied by corresponding energy bar graphs for kinetic and potential energy. It is intended to allow users to visualize mechanical energy conservation, as they investigate why the tension force does no work on the pendulum. This resource is part of The Physics Classroom, an online physics tutorial written for high school physics students.
