Lesson Planet

#### Swinging Pendulum

Students engage in an activity which demonstrates how potential energy (PE) can be converted to kinetic energy (KE) and back again. Given a pendulum height, students calculate and predict how fast the pendulum will swing by understanding...

Lesson Planet

#### Time That Period

Physical science starters play with a pendulum in order to experience periodicity. Detailed procedures and a worksheet are included for day one. For day two, learners will use a graphing calculator to help them plot orbit data from a...

Lesson Planet

#### Stars and Slopes

More of a math lesson than physics or space science, high schoolers take a set of data and plot it on a log-log coordinate system. The write-up for day two was never completed, but day one, "Stars and Slopes," is complex and cohesive....

Lesson Planet

#### Physics 240 UnTest 3

It is called an "UnTest" because it is a practice test for an upcoming exam. In it, your first-year physicists practice solving problems pertaining to wave motion, pendulum period, and moment of inertia. There are eight problems in all...

#### Simple Harmonic Motion

This short video covers simple harmonic motion, focusing on pendulums. It is the fifth in a series of six videos that make for a nice Physics review.

Lesson Planet

#### Graphing Pendulum Results

Sixth graders set up a pendulum experiment deciding which variable to manipulate (length of string or weight on the string). They create a hypothesis, collect necessary equipment, and write out each step of their experiment. They then...

Lesson Planet

#### Acceleration of Gravity with Pendulums

Young scholars explore, analyze and study to see whether the length of a pendulum affects its period and whether the mass of a pendulum affects its period. They review and discuss a lengthy list of math definitions and experiment with...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums

First-time physicists experiment with pendulums in this physics lesson. They vary the weight of the bob, record how long each takes to complete ten period swings, and then calculate the time for one period. They repeat the procedure,...

Lesson Planet

#### Simple Harmonic Motion with Dr. DAQ

Students study the work and accomplishment of Galileo. In this physics lesson, students calculate the period of a pendulum's using a mathematical equation. They explain the different factors affecting its period.

Lesson Planet

#### Periodic Motion - The Pendulum

Students experiment to determine the period of a pendulum. In this periodic motion lesson, students use different pendulums to determine their periods. They use various amplitudes to determine its effects on the period.

Lesson Planet

#### Oscillations

Young scholars construct and compare the actions of various pendulums. In this pendulum motion lesson, students build and test different types of pendulums. They conduct experiments with the length of the swing arm and apply mathematical...

Lesson Planet

#### Coupled Resonant Pendulums

Students discover every pendulum has a natural vibration cycle that depends on its length. In this physical science lesson, students participate in an experiment that shows the natural vibration frequency of two pendulums is the same if...

Lesson Planet

#### How Can a Clock Part Measure Gravity?

Students measure motion. In this gravity and motion lesson, students make a simple pendulum and use the TI-73 calculator to calculate how acceleration varies with pendulum length. Students record data from their experiments on the...

Lesson Planet

#### Exploring Pendulums

In this exploring pendulums worksheet, students experiment with pendulums they make in the lab. They vary the length of the strings and the weights to observe the changes in the pendulum's amplitude and frequency. They answer 3 analysis...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums

Middle schoolers explore the period of a pendulum. In this pendulum lesson plan, students make a pendulum using a fishing weight, hook, string and paper clip and measure the pendulum's period. Middle schoolers measure the number of...

Lesson Planet

#### Physics 240:21

In this physics 240: 21, the students calculate the period of oscillation as well as the period of the pendulum described in the word problems. Students also determine the frequency of oscillation.

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Lab in 9th Grade Physical Science

Ninth graders conduct experiments to determine what affects the rate of a pendulum's swing. Working in small groups, they identify an independent variable to study and create an experiment to test their hypothesis. When tests are...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulums on the Moon

Students conduct experiments to determine if length, mass, or starting angle has any effect on the rate of a pendulum's swing. They also conduct an experiment online to determine if gravitational force plays a role in the swing. Groups...

Lesson Planet

#### Energy, Light, Heat, and Sound

Fifth graders investigate various forms of energy. They compare potential and kinetic energy at different points during the period of a pendulum, design an apparatus that displays potential and kinetic energy, and analyze the advantages...

Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Motion

Students explore questions which cannot be handled with simple pendulums, and examine both the usefulness and the limitations of approximations in science. A Java applet created from a Stella model is included.

Lesson Planet

#### Swing in Time

Students examine the motion of pendulums and come to understand that the longer the string of the pendulum, the fewer the number of swings in a given time interval. They see that changing the weight on the pendulum does not have an...

Lesson Planet

#### Swings

Students investigate variables which may seem to affect the movement of a pendulum, or "swing."They interpret their observations and apply the scientific principles to develop explanations and solve a new problem.

Lesson Planet

#### Periodic Motion - The Pendulum

Students study the concept of periodic motion and relate it to the movement of a pendulum. They discover that the period of a pendulum is dependent on the length of the pendulum and independent of the bob and the amplitude.

Lesson Planet

#### Rock-A-Bye Pendulum

Third graders analyze the effects of force on an object in motion and its relationship to a change in speed. This lesson uses a pendulum to demonstrate the principle.
