Simulation of Nonlinear Simple Pendulum
Watch this File
A nonlinear Simple Pendulum is simulated. Phase plane plot and time vs. displacement plots are updated accordingly. Pendulum equation is nonlinear, it is solved using ode45 of MATLAB. Mass, length, damping, and duration of pendulum can be changed.
Animated Double Pendulum and Arrowhead inspired this file.
Animation can be viewed in the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfzfMsT3_Mw
Included m file to show direction of the lines in phase plane
Added stop button on the figure window
