Purpose: The focus of this experiment was to show that the kinetic energy,  potential energy and total mechanical energy of a pendulum changes as  functions of time. Procedure: The first step to beginning the lab was to capture the video of Lucy  swinging the pendulum. The camera captured the movement of the pendulum as  it made one full swing back to the origin. Then we followed all the steps to  analyze the video using the World in Motion software. The first kinetic motion that  we analyzed was the position vs. time graph. We looked at the graphs of both the  horizontal and vertical positions. Then we analyzed the graph of the velocity and  found the acceleration by looking at the slope. We also used the graph to  calculate the acceleration due to gravity. We found the magnitude and direction
