ME17.9 Wilberforce Pendulum

This may be harder to see from the back of the room. The pendulum begins oscillating vertically, but the energy transfers between modes. The vertical oscillations have stopped and the weight spins with a maximum amplitude. After that point, energy begins to go transfer back to the vertical oscillation, and so the rotational oscillations dwindle.
