Magic with physics - pendulum stop
This online resource shows the steps of a student practical activity that focuses on how to build a double pendulum system to illustrate the conservation of energy.
The resource has an explanation of how it works and some extension activities.
Achievement Standard: Students explain the concept of energy conservation and represent energy transfer and transformation within systems.
Suggested time: 30–60 minutes depending on the extension activities.
