Liverpool museums - National Museums Liverpool Jonathan Jeremiah Activity Guide: Pendulum Motion | Circus Physics | Classroom | Circus Swinging back and forth, the solo trapeze is a giant pendulum just like the one in a grandfather clock. The time it takes to swing forward, then back to where it started is called the period. Surprisingly, this time has very little to do with the height of the swing, or amplitude. It depends mainly on the length of the pendulum, the longer the pendulum, the longer the period. In this unit students will learn how to find how to find a pendulum's period from its length, and vice-versa. How to Incorporate the Video Into Instruction This video can be used to motivate the study of pendulum motion, or to introduce the concept of simple harmonic motion. Questions to Ask Students Before Watching the Video How is the trapeze like a grandfather clock? Watch the Video Questions to Kick-Start Class Discussion After the Video What happens as the trapeze-artist changes position from sitting on the trapeze, to hanging below it, to hanging on the rope? Connections to Everyday Life Activity 1: Pendulum Lab
