Abstract
Pendulums have long been used to to determine the kinematics of non-inertial rotating systems. A proper study of this classical mechanical device under the action of a rotating reference frame can fully describe the behavior of such non-inertial systems. In such venue, we have placed a pendulum inside a rotating plane ride in an amusement park, and determined the parameters defining the rotation of the ride by solely analyzing the pendulum's motion. We present two different methodologies to dete...
