Wilberforce Pendulum: the mass and sprin – Diy Craft Videos









 

Wilberforce Pendulum: the mass and spring properties of this device are tuned such that the kinetic energy transfers back and forth between bouncing and twisting in this special coupled harmonic oscillator system invented by physicist Lionel Wilberforce in 1896. If any system is free to oscillate in two or more ways, the energy can transfer between the different modes. Here the mass and rotational inertia (altered by moving the four small masses in and out) are adjusted so that the period of energy transfer is about 15 seconds. This system will complete up to 5 cycles (from rotation only to bounce only and back) before the energy is dissipated. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for more info and where to get this device and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #coupledoscillator #torsionspring #torque #wilberforce #wilberforcependulum #hamonicoscillation #hookeslaw #spring #kineticart #physics #physicstoy #science #scienceisawesome #kineticsculpture
