Conservation of Energy of a Simple Pendulum
The purpose of this experiment is to use measurements of the motion of a simple pendulum to calculate and compare the different types of energy present in the system.
A Rotary Motion Sensor is used to record the motion of the pendulum as it swings back and forth, and software calculations are used to determine the values of the various energy types during the oscillations.PreviewDownload

This system provides a complete set of labs for mechanics, heat, light, sound, and electromagnetism.
The 550 is fast, powerful, and incredibly affordable. It offers half the ports and many of the same features as our 850 Interface in a smaller package.
The PASPORT Rotary Motion Sensor measures position, velocity, and angular and linear acceleration.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
