Pendulum Phase Space Orbit -- Multi-Cycle


Pendulum Phase Space Orbit -- Multi-Cycle

Logo for Pendulum Phase Space Orbit -- Multi-Cycle
An animation showing a pendulum's oscillation in phase space, with a time axis curving back on itself in a circle. This in effect repeats the cycle after a certain number of orbits. This represents a system which may have some sort of periodicity associated with it as does the pendulum itself. The user may change the viewpoint of the graph.
