Pendulum with Velocity and Acceleration

Last Updated: 7/27/18

Teaching Standards:

This module expands on the capabilities for teaching using a Pendulum. A pendulum by itself can provide valuable insight into harmonic motion and the relationship between frequency and period. It can also provide useful information in proving conservation of energy, as well as newton’s laws of motion. Subsequently, this module will allow you to measure parameters, velocity and acceleration, useful in illustrating both of these concepts.

The presentation material and the code can be downloaded at Pendulum with Velocity and Acceleration.
