Main Document

Simple Pendulum JS Model 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Simple Pendulum JavaScript Model computes the dynamics of a simple pendulum.  The pendulum is initially displaced from equilibrium and the pendulum bob has zero initial velocity.  The initial position of the pendulum bob can be changed by click-dragging the bob when the simulation is paused.  

The Simple Pendulum JavaScript Model was developed using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) version 5.1.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser or tablet with JavaScript support.
