Pendulum waves demonstration

A Harvard Natural Sciences Lecture Demonstration of pendulum waves, a physics classic. Watch more pendulum videos on this site.  Thanks, imuptoolate.

Parabolas (etc.) by Radiolab + Everynone

A video inspired by the mathematician, Steve Strogatz. At the age of thirteen, Steve was astonished to find that pendulums and water fountains had a strange relationship that had previously been completely hidden from...

Eske Rex: Pendulum-Powered Drawing Machine

Eske Rex’s Pendulum-Powered Drawing Machine immediately came to mind when I first saw Robert Howsare’s Drawing Apparatus. They both play off of the old spirograph-ish connection, howeve...

Citadel Physics: Wave Pendulum

jtotheizzoe: Get hypnotized by this wave pendulum… seriously, I can’t look away. A wave pendulum like this is built of equally weighted objects suspended by different (and carefully cal...

The Iron Genie Harmonograph

Watch artist Anita Chowdry's Iron Genie Harmonograph create intricate, spirograph-like drawings. Made of steel, it was inspired by mid-19th century harmonographs and St. Pancras Station's Victorian engineering. The vi...

A pendulum wave demonstration with bowling balls

Thanks to these 16 bowling balls hung from a 20 foot wooden frame in the mountains of North Carolina, we can see what a large-scale pendulum wave apparatus looks (and sounds) like. Filmed by Maria Ikenberry, she also ...

Pangraph v4: Making Spirocakes (Spirograph Pancakes)

Nathan Shields has been working on making spirograph pancakes for over a month. From his workshop to his kitchen, he's done the math, designed templates, made gear teeth on a bandsaw, tried out different materials, an...

Make Lissajous patterns with DIY sand pendulums or light

Sand pendulums are an easy and beautiful method for students of all ages to learn a bit about the harmonic motion. These devices are easy to build and can be adjusted to give a variety of patterns. A pendulum that beg...

Homemade marble track demonstrations by science teacher Bruce Yeany

Science teacher Bruce Yeany uses this collection of physics marble tracks to introduce and reinforce his students' ideas about perpetual and kinetic energy, motion, acceleration, inertia, and more. The tracks—stringle...

Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time, No. 2

Swinging plumb bobs hang in a gridded formation across a large room as visitors attempt to walk among them without making contact. The installation, Nowhere and Everywhere at the Same Time, No. 2 by William Forsythe, ...

The Coupled Pendulum, a physics demonstration

See the simple laws of physics at work: Two pendulums swing on a string, transferring energy from one to the other and back again. This demonstration by MarkHacks, made with cardboard, screw hooks, tape, string, and t...
