G2-24: COUPLED PENDULA - 100 TO 1 MASS RATIO

Additional Info

  • ID Code: G2-24
  • Purpose: Illustrate mechanical resonance.
  • Description: The two pendula have the same length, but the mass of the upper bob is 100 times that of the lower bob. With the masses hanging motionless, gently tap the bigger mass. Its energy will couple to the smaller mass, causing the smaller mass to oscillate with a much larger amplitude. The energy then couples back to the larger mass, and the cycle repeats.
  • Availability: Available
