Circus Physics: Pendulum Motion

This video-based resource examines factors that affect the amplitude and period of ... (more)

This video-based resource examines factors that affect the amplitude and period of a pendulum. It provides a highly visual way to explore pendulum motion as a trapeze artist swings on a bar/rope system. Watch what happens to the pendulum period as her center of mass changes when she sits on the bar or moves to the rope below. The accompanying activity guide introduces the mathematics associated with pendulum motion. This resource includes a teacher's guide with tips on how to incorporate the video into instruction, discussion questions, and accompanying classroom activities. This resource was developed in conjunction with the PBS series <i>Circus</i>. <b>See Related Materials</b> for a link to the full set of 8 Circus Physics video-based lessons. (less)

This interactive lesson for Grades 9-12 demonstrates how the motion of the Foucault pendulum proves that the earth is rotating. It blends an animated tutorial with informative text to expand student understanding of motion and gravitational force. It was also designed to address the common misconceptions that the earth's gravity does not extend beyond its atmosphere or that it is caused by the atmosphere. The package includes student activity sheet with answer key for teachers. <b>See Related Materials</b> for a short video from Teachers' Domain that further explores Leon Foucault's famous pendulum experiment and an online tutorial from PhysClips that provides more advanced information about the physics involved.</b> Science NetLinks is a part of <i>Thinkfinity</i>, a partnership that provides free Internet-based content across academic disciplines. Science resources are aligned to AAAS Benchmarks for Science Literacy. (less)
