written by Fu-Kwun Hwang
This java simulation demonstrates energy conservation with a pendulum.  It shows a simple pendulum oscillating back and forth, and it graphs the kinetic and potential energy of the system as it oscillates.  The user can change the gravity, the mass at the end of the pendulum, and the maximum amplitude of the pendulum.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
