Is pendulum motion of a mass oscillating about a fixed point on a mass-less string under a retarding force proportional to the amount of displacement from an equilibrium position?
It turns out that a pendulum is only appropriately a simple harmonic motion with the angular displacement is small. How small? play with the app and it turns out to be roughly less than 10 degree from the vertical plumb line.
The velocity and acceleration and forces are also select-able for visualization purposes.
This app is produce real numbers to coincident with the real world data.
My sincere gratitude for the tireless contributions of Francisco Esquembre, Fu-Kwun Hwang, Wolfgang Christian, Félix Jesús Garcia Clemente, Anne Cox, Andrew Duffy, Todd Timberlake and many more in the Open Source Physics community. I have designed much of the above based on their ideas and insights.
