This physics video tutorial discusses the simple harmonic motion of a pendulum. It provides the equations that you need to calculate the period, frequency, and length of a pendulum on Earth, the Moon, or another planet. It shows you how to calculate the maximum velocity of the pendulum. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems.

Here is a list of topics:

1. Simple Harmonic Motion - The Pendulum

2. Restoring Force Equation - Function of Sine & Angle Theta

3. Hooke's Law of Restoring Forces F = KX

4. Period and Frequency Calculations - Cycles and Vibrations Per Unit Time

5. How To Calculate the Gravitational Acceleration of a Planet Using The Simple Pendulum Experiment

6. Maximum Velocity Calculations

7. Finding The Velocity Given Two Angles

8. Pendulum String Length Calculations

9. Angular Frequency and Acceleration

10. Conservation of Energy - Pendulums

11. Maximum Velocity vs Maximum Acceleration

12. Maximum Kinetic Energy vs Minimum Potential Energy

13. Mechanical Energy - Total Energy of System

14. Calculating The Angle as a Function of Time - Sine and Cosine Sinusoidal Functions - Describing the angular position Mathematically

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
