PhET virtual lab on pendulums. Students look at the velocity and acceleration of a pendulum and how gravity and the length of the pendulum affects the period of a pendulum. Students then use what they have learned to design an experiment using a pendulum to calculate the gravity on an unknown planet.
Supports AP physics 1 simple harmonic motion standards.
