Pendulum Motion Video Tutorial

The Pendulum Motion Video Tutorial provides a wealth of details about the motion of a pendulum. Discussion topics include forces, free-body diagrams, force analysis with components, changes in speed and direction, position-time graphs, velocity-time graphs, changes in kinetic and potential energy, and the period-length relationship. The video lesson answers the following questions:

  1. How does the force, acceleration, position, velocity, kinetic energy, and potential energy change over the course of a pendulum’s path?
  2. What factors affect the period of a pendulum and how?
