Double Pendulum ( Trivia # 15 )

on Saturday, May 2, 2009

A double pendulum is a pendulum with another pendulum attached to its end, and is a simple physical system that exhibits rich dynamic behavior. The motion of a double pendulum is governed by a set of coupled ordinary differential equations. The double pendulum undergoes chaotic motion, and shows a sensitive dependence on initial conditions.
The lack of a natural excitation frequency has led to the use of double pendulum systems in seismic resistance designs in buildings, where the building itself is the primary inverted pendulum, and a secondary mass is connected to complete the double pendulum.
Don't think much about what i wrote in the previous paragraph ... this pendulum is seldom used for any purpose ... but u will really appreciate their random motion !!
