  1. simple pendulum

    A simple pendulum is a basic mechanism consisting of a mass (often referred to as a bob) attached to the end of a thin string or rod, which swings back and forth under the influence of gravity. The motion of the pendulum is determined by its length and the force of gravity, and it is generally assumed that there is no air resistance or friction for a simple pendulum. The system is commonly used to illustrate basic principles in physics, especially those related to oscillatory motion.
