Interrupted Pendulum

MIT Department of Physics Technical Services Group

Added 4 years ago | 00:01:40 | 14886 views

A pendulum swings from a support post and another post is added to interrupt its swing. We desire to know the maximum height at which the pendulum will perform a full loop around the post. The pendulum requires both potential and kinet...
