Description: Interactive free flash animation to similate an activity to learn parameters that influence the period. Mass? Thread length? Initial angle?
The activity instructions:
A. Evaluate the period T of the pendulum for 6 different values of:
1. length l ;
2. initial elongation θ0 ;
3. mass m.
Present the results in tabular form.
B. Plot T 2 = f(l).
Simple pendulum: Hypothetical pendulum suspended by a massless and frictionless thread of constant length.
Video: PCCL does not post a video here as it is up to the students to complete the activity.
