Verifying the Hanging Chain Model
Karls, Michael A.
PRIMUS, v23 n8 p733-747 2013
The wave equation with variable tension is a classic partial differential equation that can be used to describe the horizontal displacements of a vertical hanging chain with one end fixed and the other end free to move. Using a web camera and TRACKER software to record displacement data from a vibrating hanging chain, we verify a modified version of the wave equation with variable tension that accounts for damping.
