Welcome to an awesome Science-At-Home activity where you’ll have a “swinging” time learning about a pendulum’s acceleration and amplitude, with a little bit of friction thrown in.
How Does It Work?
This fun apparatus, created from some string and steel rings, is a pendulum. But it’s not like a pendulum found in a grandfather clock that swings slowly back and forth. This one operates using acceleration from gravity. When you release the small ring, gravity accelerates the ring toward the ground, giving it velocity (the speed of motion.)
