# Physics Tutorial 10.2 - Pendulums. Energy in Simple Harmonic Motion

There are 5 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Pendulums. Energy in Simple Harmonic Motion. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Pendulums. Energy in Simple Harmonic Motion and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Pendulums. Energy in Simple Harmonic Motion. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.

In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:

• What are damped and sustainable SHM and where do they differ from each other?
• How to calculate energy in SHM?
• What is simple pendulum?
• How to calculate the period of a simple pendulum?
• What are the factors affecting the period of a simple pendulum?
• Which are the parameters used to study the motion of a simple pendulum?
• How to find the angular displacement and angular velocity in a simple pendulum?

## Introduction

How does a wall pendulum clock keeps swinging? Can it swing for long intervals without any human action? Why?

How would you make a pendulum swing at the same amplitude for long periods of time?

Do you know other examples of pendulums application in daily life? Could you provide a few of them?

Obviously, all the above examples have one thing in common: they all need a sustainable source of energy to keep the system operating for long periods. Therefore, energy in SHM is an irreplaceable element if we want to keep objects oscillations at the same parameters.
