SIMPLE GRAVITY PENDULUM

ENERGY TRANSFER - Conservation of mechanical energy

 

 

Description: Interactive flash animation to exploit the conservation of mechanical energy in the simple case of the oscillations of a frictionless PENDULUM.

 

Definition:

Simple pendulum: Hypothetical pendulum suspended by a massless and frictionless thread of constant length.

Law of conservation of mechanical energy - Statement: Mechanical energy, in a closed system in the absence of dissipative forces (e.g. friction, air resistance), remains constant.
