Rating: 5 stars

Comment: I worked through this applet and performed a couple of the suggested
experiments. I found the pendulum w/ rotating suspension force very interesting.
The experiment stated that while balancing a pencil on the tip of your finger
is very difficult, balancing a pendulum in the upright position is very easy. I
found this to be very interesting and I tried the experiment myself using the
given applets.

Technical Remarks:

The applets are very easy to use and the instructions are very helpful. The
lecture room provides an information base for those unclear on the theories
involved. Nice Site.
