Oscillations of Coupled pendulum is an interesting phenomenon in Physics.

Two pendulum connected with a spring can be made to oscillate in different ways…

  • Both oscillating in phase
  • Both oscillating out of phase
  • One at rest and other oscillating

Today I could complete the experimental setup as well as the required python code.

Here is the experimental set-up….


The waveforms generated using DC motors after amplification…

coupled pendula1 coupled pendula2 coupled pendula3

The waveforms show beats as theoretically expected….

The complete code is here…
