Tell us about yourself!
Sorry the video didn't download last time I'm sure it is all up and running now and any help to get this perfected would be appreciated.
Thanks Jack I really appreciate the depth of your reply. I have my friendly mathematician working out the algebra for me. I did go through each pendulum and adjusted where necessary so the swings went in sequence eg 23 24 25 etc. I think the problem is that the holes I have drilled in the top board aren't even enough and also I have two strings sharing one hole. I will correct that today and hopefully it will all come right. At the end I can write an article about all of the mistakes newbies like me make and how to fix them. I want to get it finished before we get out of our level 3 Bubble to level 2. In New Zealand that is tomorrow. So I know what I will be working on today.
OK I have it built and the oscillations are correct but I cannot get anything perfect once the snake finishes. I also can't see what I need to adjust. I don't quite get 3 lines and I dont quite get the helix. Any help would be appreciated. I have spent hours adjusting it.
Hi Jack thanks so much for your reply. I am hoping you or somebody else can help a bit more. I have the balls swinging well. I have checked the oscillations and they number correctly through the 14 balls. I am just making the minor changes in length I had no idea it would be so complicated but maybe it is just perseverance.
