Question description

  1. Refer to the diagram of a swinging pendulum below and indicate the point(s) where the acceleration is 0 and where the acceleration is highest. Also indicate whe re the speed is 0 and maximum.
  2. Run the pendulum simulation and verify your results for question 1 .  Briefly explain in your own words why the pendulum oscillates.
  3. According to the simulation, where is the kinetic energy highest? Please explain why that is so given your answers to the previous questions.
  4. Write the equation for the pendulum's period T. What characteristic(s) of the equipment affect the period? Verify your result; change the variables in the simulation and note any change (or not) in the oscillation period.
  5. Briefly explain why a pendulum makes a good clock.
