Double Pendulum Tracker Experiment
written by Andrzej Morawa and Karol Strama
This Tracker experiment shows a double pendulum made of two wooden boards with different lengths. The Tracker analysis uses a moving coordinate system to measure the angle between the two pendula. It was submitted by a Krakow, Poland, high school student.

A trz file is a zip file that contains the video and Tracker data.  It can be opened using Tracker.  It can also be opened with standard zip tools to extract analysis pdf and the video clip.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
