Pendulum (Jumping Pendulum)

  • Drag the pendulum bob to one side and release.
  • The bob may (i) oscillate, or (ii) undergo a complete or incomplete circular motion, depending on the level of release and whether or not the pendulum is interrupted by the pin.
  • Assumptions:
    (1) All frictional forces are negligible.
    (2) The string is inextensible.
    (3) The radial velocity of the bob will disppaear instantly when the string becomes straight after a free fall.
