Investigation of a Chaotic Double Pendulum in the Basic Level Physics Teaching Laboratory
Vanko, Peter
European Journal of Physics, v28 n1 p61-69 Jan 2007
First-year physics students at the Technical University of Budapest carry out a wide range of measurements in the Basic Level Physics Teaching Laboratory. One of the most exciting experiments is the investigation of a chaotic double pendulum by a V-scope, a powerful three-dimensional motion tracking system. After a brief introduction to the V-scope apparatus, the measurement carried out by the students, typical results of data analysis and the experiences are presented. (Contains 7 figures.)
