The pendulum is a universal topic in primary and secondary schools, but its full potential for learning about physics, the nature of science, and the relationships between science, mathematics, technology, society and culture is seldom realised. Contributions to this 32-chapter anthology deal with the science, history, methodology and pedagogy of pendulum motion. There is ample material for the richer and more cross-disciplinary treatment of the pendulum from elementary school to high school, and through to advanced university classes. Scientists will value the studies on the physics of the pendulum; historians will appreciate the detailed treatment of Galileo, Huygens, Newton and Foucault’s pendulum investigations; psychologists and educators will learn from the papers on Piaget; teachers will welcome the many contributions to pendulum pedagogy. All readers will come away with a new awareness of the importance of the pendulum in the foundation and development of modern science; and for its centrality in so many facets of society and culture.

"The Pendulum: A Case Study in Physics" describes one physical system - the pendulum - and its manifestations in classical and modern physics. While being a technical work, this remarkable study is set within the context of the technological, historical, and cultural developments to which the pendulum has contributed.
This monograph is concerned with modeling and control of a novel inverted pendulum device known as the Reaction Wheel Pendulum. The Reaction Wheel Pendulum is perhaps the simplest of the various pendulum systems in terms of its dynamic properties. At the same time, the Reaction Wheel Pendulum exhibits several properties, such as underactuation and nonlinearity that make it an attractive and useful system for research and advanced education. As such, the Reaction Wheel Pendulum is ideally suited for educating engineering students at virtually every level, from freshman to advanced graduate students.
Politics, manners, humor, sexuality, wealth, even our definitions of success are periodically renegotiated based on the new values society chooses to use as a lens to judge what is acceptable. Are these new values randomly chosen or is there a pattern? Pendulum chronicles the stuttering history of western society; that endless back-and-forth swing between one excess and another, always reminded of what we left behind. There is a pattern and it is 40 years: 2003 was a fulcrum year, as was 1963, its opposite. Pendulum explains where we have been as a society, how we got here, and where we are headed. If you would benefit from a peek into the future, you would do well to read this book.
From the May, 1999 American Society for Testing and Materials conference of the same name come 23 papers (two of which weren't actually presented at the conference) examining the benefits and pitfalls of the Charpy impact test and some alternative methods, in particular instrumented impact testing. The broad topics treated are the background of impact testing; reference energies, machine stability, and calibration; impact test procedures, and fracture toughness assessment from impact test data.

Learn how the power of the pendulum can help you discover treasure, locate the lost, divine the new, and advise in relationships.
Beginning with the basic theories and practices of dowsing, Eason reveals techniques for finding lost objects, healing, identifying energy fields, and even making sound personal decisions about career, family, and money. She also identifies ways in which dowsing can help us tune in to the psychic world. Learn about the properties of different pendulums and how to choose the best one for your purposes. Gain experience and develop skills for a confident future practice. An excellent introduction to this age-old divination technique.
1955 to the average man or woman, the use of a pendulum or diving rod is completely new and mystifying. But in reality, it is one of the oldest sciences known to man, with many references to the use of rods and pendulums found throughout history. Stell.
