The Pendulum Lab is a software simulation where students can study the relationships between the period and the mass, radius, amplitude, and acceleration of gravity. The period is measured by using an on screen stopwatch.
A help screen in the software gives students directions on how to use the simulation.
The included lab handout leads students through the process of taking the four sets of data, making graphs, and finding the relationships and equation. An answer key is included.
