Homework Help: Double pedulum

  1. Aug 12, 2007 #1
    does the double pendulum have a time period as such....and if so...how do we practically find it out...and if so then the time period is dependant on the intermediate mass or the main bob?

    What work have you done so far towards answering your questions? A double pendulum is not too much different from a single pendulum in terms of solving the motions. You figure out the forces acting on the bobs and solve the differential equations.
