This following applet is Circular motion in vertical plane
Created by prof Hwang Modified by Ahmed
Original project Circular motion in vertical plane
A small sphere of mass m is attached to the end of a cord of length R, which rotates under the influence of the gravitation force in a vertical circle about a fixed point.
This applet shows how the speed of the sphere and the tension of the cord change.

• 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!

The graphic trace you added is Vx- t (i.e. x-axis is time t, and y-axis is vx).
It is not Vx/t (Vx divided by t).

In the simulation gravity g=9.8 m/s (SI unit is used , meter,kg, second)
