This web page is an animation of a simple pendulum consisting of a mass on a string. It displays changes in potential and kinetic energy, allowing students to observe that they are conserved and sum to a constant throughout the entire oscillation. This item is part of a collection of similar simulation-based activities for introductory physics students.
