Chaos Pendulum

This experiment uses the computer/multimedia system to measure the motion of a chaotic pendulum system that contains a frequency driver and two springs attached to the pendulum. A real time graphical phase plot of Angular Velocity vs Angular Position shows the concept of "strange attractors". This photo shows the approximate settings for the chaos demonstration. Note the drivingfrequency is set at 0.45 Hz and the amplitude is at about 2/3's.
