Fun with phase

26 Oct

Pretty awesome show for a bunch of simple pendulums. The period of the pendulum, or the time it takes for the pendulum to swing from one side to the other and back, is dependent on the length of the string. All the cool shapes and patterns are just the result of the differences in period. Patterns appear and then disappear as the pendulums get in and out of phase with each other.
