Coupled Pendulums

Description: A coupled pendulum is constructed by connecting two rods with masses at one end to pivot points on a common support bar. The coupling between the pendula is realized by a very fine wire spring of many turns between the aluminum rods, as shown in the figure. The coupling effets may then be studied as a function of the frequencies of the pendula.
