Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
This web page is an interactive physics simulation relating to pendulum oscillations.  Two views are offered:  a small pendulum amplitude of 20 degrees and a large amplitude of 135 degrees.  The user can see the graph of simple harmonic motion generated by the smaller amplitude, compared with the non-sinusoidal graph produced by the larger displacement.  This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities for introductory physics students.
