Simple Harmonic Motion
|SHM||This is one of the best available.
Click on "bar
chart" and then on "graph" and it gives you an introduction
to the sin wave.
Watch out - you're limited to 5 minutes!
|Applet showing Displacement, Velocity and Acceleration vectors for object undergoing SHM||4 Star|
|Nice applet for demonstrating that acceleration is a maximum when velocity is a minimum.||4 Star|
|Very useful introduction to SHM, although many of the concepts are above leaving cert level||4 Star|
|Similar to above||4 Star|
|SHM of a shadow||Useful to demonstrate the connection between circular motion and shm. YouTube 15 secs||4 Star|
|Hooke's Law Experiment||Excellent simulation of the experiment. Hang different weights and measure the extension.||5 Star|
|Art and the Pendulum||YouTube 2 minutes. Should we make this?||4 Star|
|YouTube 2 minutes. Even prettier||5 Star|
|Want to buy one?||Not too expensive either!|
|Pendulum Wave Demonstration||Link||large-scale demonstration of the interaction between period and pendulum length, using 16 bowling balls hung from a wooden frame. Youtube. 3 mins.|
|Change Length, Mass or g, and press go. Or use it as practice for the Leaving Cert Experiment||4 Star|
