Physical Pendulum Energy 

written by Mark Matlin

The Physical Pendulum Energy model shows the motion of of a physical pendulum (rod) and and the kinetic and potential energies of the parts of the rod above and below the rotation axis, as well as the total energies of those parts.  The length of rod above the rotation axis, as well as the rod's mass, initial angle and initial angular velocity can be adjusted.
