Purpose:Demonstrates the relationship between simple harmonic motion and uniform circular motion.
Description:Turning a crank on the rear of the apparatus causes the center ball to move in circular motion around a 30cm diameter orbit, while the ball on top executes simple harmonic motion. It can be seen that SHM is the projection of UCM. This device can also be used to discuss the concept of degrees of motion in SHM by comparison with the reference circle.
