I want to investigate the phenomenon of Chaos in the form of how its driving amplitude affects _____, in a driven, damped pendulum, using a computer simulation given.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Initially I was looking at 'degree of chaos' for the dependent variable - to measure this I wanted to use the Lyapunov exponent, however I do not know how to calculate this.

1) Is there a simple way to calculate this? If not,

2) Are there any other ways I can measure the 'degree of chaos' of this driven damped pendulum? If not,

3) Are there any other possible things I can set as a dependent variable? With the system being chaotic, I do not know if I can measure any sort of correlation between two variables....

Thank you SO MUCH for your help!!
