HVT1 Simple Pendulum

HVT1 Simple Pendulum

A simple pendulum consisting of a cord with a ring at the top end and a sliding pendulum mass.

The pendulum mass can be adjusted to any position along the pendulum cord length, quickly and easily. Set-up time is minimal for excellent results.

The pendulum oscillates on a knife-edge bracket attached to the wall at a convenient height.

A stopwatch and ruler are supplied to time the swing of the pendulum and to measure its length.

A comprehensive instruction manual for student and lecturer is supplied along with a 2 year warranty.
