The Pendulum Wave - Small
# 3A10.141


Description: Several pendula of different lengths are adjusted to have successively increasing periods. Use the supplied stick to simultaneously start all the pendulums. The different periods cause the pendulums to cycle through all possible relative phase relationships before returning to the original position. Multiple wave patters can be observed during this cycle.

This small version of the "pendulum wave" can be placed on the document camera and viewed from above. It works well this way in a large classroom.
