1 Introduction

This document describes the dynamics of a simple pendulum and a double - composite - pendulum systems which

are presented in the Pendulum Processing sketch, available at http://www.gwoptics.org/processing/

pendulum/. The same set of equations is also used in the sketch Augmented-Reality Pendulum, available at

http://www.gwoptics.org/processing/AR pendulum/. Screenshots of the two sketches are shown in Fig. 1

and Fig. 2.

2 Simple Pendulum

2.1 Constants and denitions

A cartoon of the simple pendulum system is shown in Fig. 3-left. The chosen coordinate system is also drawn,

with the horizontal axis x directed rightwards and the vertical y axis downwards. The pendulum suspension

point has coordinates (x

0

, y

0

), and the suspended mass m

1

has (x

1

, y

1

). The other physical parameters relevant

for the system are:

l

In the Pendulum sketch the pendulum suspension point can be made to oscillate horizontally with user-dened

amplitude A and frequency f. In this case the pendulums suspension horizontal coordinate x

can be written

as x

2.2 Forces

2.2 Forces

All forces in this section are written in the form of

F = {F

x

, F

y

} where F

x

and F

y

are the force components

along the x and the y axis respectively. The forces acting on the simple pendulum are therefore:

Gravity: acts vertically,

F

g

1

= {0, m

1

g}

Elasticity of suspension wire (spring-like force): it acts along the direction of the wire and it can be

written as

F

k

1

= k

1

(d

1

l

1

) {sin

1

, cos

1

}. This force can be expressed also in the form

F

k

1

=

k

1

max (d

1

l

1

) {sin

1

, cos

1

} such that the elastic force will work only when the wire is stretched

(d

1

> l

1

) and not while it is compressed (this option can be selected by the user in the Augmented

Reality Pendulum sketch).

Anelasticity of suspension wire (velocity damping-like force): acts along the direction of the wire,

F

k

1

=

k

1

d

1

where

d

1

=

1

d

1

[(x

1

x

(t)) ( x

1

x

0

) + (y

1

y

0

) ( y

1

y

0

)] {sin

1

, cos

1

}. Also this force should

take into account of extension/compression of the wire as for the above elastic force

Gas damping (velocity damping): assuming small velocity regime i.e. damping linearly proportional to

velocity, it can be written as

F

v

1

= {v

1

x

, v

1

y

} = { x

1

, y

1

}. Note that it is directed in opposite

direction with respect to the instantaneous velocity.

Diagrams of all the above forces are shown in Fig. 4-left.

3 Double composite pendulum

3.1 Constants and denitions

We consider now the case of a composite pendulum system with a second pendulum #2 hanging from pendulum

#1, as shown in Fig. 3-right. The relevant physical parameters for pendulum #1 are the same as above and

similarly the ones for pendulum #2 are:

pendulum #2 has coordinates (x

2

, y

2

) and it hangs from (x

1

, y

1

)

the length at rest is l

2

, the mass m

2

, the elastic constants k

2

, the anelasticity coecient k

2

and the gas

damping

2

.

d

2

=

(x

2

x

1

)

2

+ (y

2

y

1

)

2

is the actual length of the suspension wire.

2

is the angle that pendulum #2 forms with the vertical axis y and, as above, sin

2

=

(x

2

x

1

)

d

2

and

cos

2

=

(y

2

y

1

)

d

2

to take into account only the extension part of the force.

3.2 Forces

3.2.1 Forces on mass #1

All forces on mass #1 described in the previous sections can be expressed as above. The only additional force

on mass #1 comes from the elasticity of pendulum #2 wire which pulls from below. This can be written as

F

k

12

= +k (d

2

l

2

) {sin

2

, cos

2

} (note the positive sign) and also this force can be expressed as

F

k

12

=

+k max (d

2

l

2

, 0) {sin

2

, cos

2

}

The contribution from anelasticity of wire #2 is neglected for the moment. Diagrams of all the above forces are

shown in Fig. 4-centre.

3.2.2 Forces on mass #2

The forces acting on pendulum #2 follow the usual expressions seen before:

Gravity

F

g

2

= m

2

g{0, 1}

Elasticity of wire

F

k

2

= k

2

(d

l

2

) {sin

2

, cos

2

} (or in the form F = k

2

max (d

2

l

2

, 0) )

d

where

d

2

[(x

) ( x

2

x

1

) + (y

2

y

1

) ( y

2

y

1

)[ {sin

2

, cos

2

}

Residual gas damping

F

v

2

= {v

2

x

, v

2

y

} = { x

2

, y

2

}

Diagrams of all the above forces are shown in Fig. 4-right.

4 Leapfrog Method for integration of equations of motion

For the solution of the equation of motion the Pendulum and the Augmented-Reality Pendulum sketches

make use of the Leapfrog method

1

, a well know method for the numerical integration of dierential equations,

which is commonly used to study of the time evolution of physical systems. With this method positions velocities

and accelerations are derived at interleaved times (hence leapfrog), and this proves to provide reliable results

as long as the time interval t = (t

i+1

t

i

) between successive samplings i (the leapfrog step) is smaller

than any characteristic time in the system. In the Pendulum and Augmented-Reality Pendulum cases this

condition can be expressed as

t

1

2

g

d

1,2

and t

1

2

k

1,2

m

1,2

for the dierent values of k

1

and k

2

, m

1

and m

2

, and d

1

and d

2

.

In the Pendulum and in the Augmented-Reality Pendulum sketches, the values of velocities are initially

set zero (t = 0) and initial values of the coordinates can be arbitrarily chosen. The values of accelerations are

derived only at a later stage and therefore can be initially ignored. Then, at any successive times t

i

, we perform

the following iteration:

1. calculate positions as x(t

i+1

) = x(t

i

) + x(t

i

) (t

i+1

t

i

) (i.e. using the previously calculated value of

velocity)

2. calculate accelerations at time t

i+1

following the equations of motion above, and using the above values

of position (x(t

i+1

)) and velocity ( x(t

i

))

3. calculate velocities for t

i+1

as x(t

i+1

) = x(t

i+1

) + x(t

i

) (t

i+1

t

i

)

4. restart from step 1
