## C8-03: GALILEO'S PENDULUM

• ID Code: C8-03
• Purpose: Demonstrate conservation of energy in a simple system.
• Description: The pendulum is hung from the upper peg with the lower peg interrupting its swing to the right. When started from the left at a given height, the pendulum rises to that same height on the right, after being stopped by the lower peg.

See demonstration G1-20 to explore more complexities of this setup.
