Main Document

Pendulum Energy JS Model Package 

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

The EJS Pendulum Energy Model shows a pendulum and associated energy bar charts. Users can change the initial starting point of the pendulum. There are two versions of the model: one with only energy data given and one with additional height and speed data provided. This model is distributed with a middle-school physical science lesson plan (see the additional documents).

The Pendulum Energy JavaScript Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.
