        Virtual Pendulum

        The amount of time it takes a pendulum to swing back and forth stays the same even if, for example, you change its weight. But, what if you took a pendulum to another planet? In this interactive activity from the ZOOM Web site, users have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of factors, including pendulum length, the force of gravity, and rotation rate of the planet to see how they each affect a virtual pendulum.
