Title: The Angular Simple Harmonic Oscillator


1
The Angular Simple Harmonic Oscillator
Torsion Pendulum
Notice that the angular position as a function of
time is sinusoidal, and therefore a torsion
pendulum undergoes simple harmonic motion like a
mass on the end of a spring.

Angular Position vs. Time

Torque vs. Angular Position
Use the middle pulley

Torsion Pendulum
Notice that just like a mass on the end of a
spring, there is an element of inertia and an
element of springiness.
