• Applications of Uniform Circular Motion - Foucault's Pendulum -
    Foucault’s Pendulum In 1851, a French physicist named Jean-Bernard-Leon Foucault suspended an iron ball with a radius of approximately 0.5 feet from the ceiling of the Pantheon in Paris with a wire that was over 200 feet long. The ball was used as a pendulum, and it could swing more than 12 fee
