Abstract

During pendulum analysis, the approximation for small angles is usually performed as a simple harmonic motion. However, for large angles, this approximation is not convenient so exact solutions are proposed by differ-ent methods. This paper presents the comparison of two solutions for the displacement of the pendulum in the domain of time and frequency, the solution by Jacobi elliptic function and the solution by the numerical method Dormand-Prince with the results of measurements obtained by means of a physical prototype designed for the teaching of physics. We consider that this comparative study allows a better understanding of the phenomenon of the non-linear pendulum in the students of undergraduate careers in the physics of waves as well as a previous training for the course of analysis of signals being in good exercise of teaching
