Abstract Title: Nonlinear Motion
Abstract: A chaotic pendulum apparatus, Am. J. Phys. 71, 250-257 (2003), and an electronic chaos apparatus, Am. J. Phys. 72, 253-258 (2004), will be demonstrated with interfaces for a stepper motor, rotary encoder, and electronic chaos circuit plainly visible on a standard breadboard. Software for simulating the apparatus, for acquiring and displaying data, and for calculating fractal dimensions, Lyapunov exponents, and system parameters from the data will be presented.
