Original project Pendulum in an accelerated car

A pendulum is in vertical position when put it in a stopped car.
What will happen when the car start to accelerate with acceleration a?
The car will swing with new equilibrium position. The following applet will show you the case:
You can change the acceleration a and the drag coefficient (assume drag force propotional to velocity put in the oppositive direction)

  • 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!
