This is SO cool. Pendulum motion waves.

This is so cool.

I have the YouTube video of this here. It is about simple harmonic and non-harmonic motion.

I loved it. I think you will, too. Check it out.



My cousin sent this link to me on Facebook. Here is the original link, which tells about these Pendulum Waves. It is from a Harvard Science lecture demonstration. Here is a quote from this page:

"What it shows: Fifteen uncoupled simple pendulums of monotonically increasing lengths dance together to produce visual traveling waves, standing waves, beating, and random motion. One might call this kinetic art and the choreography of the dance of the pendulums is stunning! Aliasing and quantum revival can also be shown."

Read on in this article to find out how it works and how they set it up.
