Re: Swing Explorer

But how does this start?

It like dividing by infinity but the opposite.

In order for gravity to have moved and pulled you back, you would have had to start moving somehow.

Re: Swing Explorer

Right! The movement of the swinger's appendages offsets the center of gravity and moves the swing*, and gravity pulls the swing back to the ground (or as close as it can get to the ground.) *The only thing that I don't get is what force this is. Kudos to mesawille for getting it straight in your hea...

Re: Swing Explorer

After looking a bit further, I have seen the force that moves the swinger. I don't know what it is called, but I know where it comes from. When you take gravity and tension from the equation and pump your legs, the swinger spins or rotates. When tension is added to the equation, and pump the swinger...

Re: Swing Explorer

Andy, Do you know what it is? I know that gravity is the force accelerating the swinger, but I can't figure out what is initiating the movement. When the swinger is at rest, friction is off, and gravity is off, all forces are balanced (according to the force diagram), and even when the swinger kicks...

Hey. It's just James. I may comment on more later because many of the topics, toys, and games here are very interesting.

Thank you for having me!
