This applet Created by prof Hwang, modified by Ahmed.
Original applet Pendulum sets with different initial angle plus damping
This simulation show 11 pendulums with different initial angle(from minimum angle to minimum angle+angle range)
It can be run in two different modes:
1. \frac{d^2\theta}{dt}=-\frac{\ell}{g}\sin\theta-b\frac{d\theta}{dt} (equation for real pendulum)
2. \frac{d^2\theta}{dt}\approx-\frac{\ell}{g}\theta-b\frac{d\theta}{dt} (equation for small angle approximation :assume \sin\theta\approx\theta)

The damping factor b=0 is the default.
You can change it and find out what will happened.
For the second mode: the period and damping factor are the same for all pendulums. Do you know why?

  • 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!
