The oscillation of any object suspended by a wire and rotating about the axis of the wire.
The classic pendulum consists of a particle suspended from a light cord. When the particle is pulled to one side and released, it swings back past the equilibrium point and oscillates between two maximum angular displacements.
A force proportional to the velocity of the object that causes it to slow down.
The phenomena in which a driving force causes a rapid increase in the amplitude of oscillation of a system.
The frequency at which a driving force will produce resonance in a given oscillating system.
