The following is a pendulum.

The blue arrow indicate the weight mg of the pendulum,
 and the square shows two component of weight (m*g*sinθ,m*g*cosθ).
The red arrow is the velocity vector (v).
The cyan arrow shows the tension of the string (T= m*g*cosθ+m*v2/L, where L is the length of the pendulum). The second term is the centripetal force required for the circular motion.)

You can click the stop button to pause the simulation and drag the black dot to change length and angle of the pendulum (the velocity will be set to zero when you drag the black dot).

You can drag the end of the velocity arrow to change it's velocity and watch how tension force changed,too!

  • Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
  • Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
  • Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!

Hi Prof, I don't think the black dot is drag-able.
please verify?


BTW, this is a great vertical circular motion applet.

Sorry! I need to change the order of the GUI elements to make it drag-able. (The shape should appear later than velocity/force arrows).
It is fixed now.
