Abstract

PROF. SCRIPTURE'S letter in NATURE of April 26 leaves me in great perplexity, for when I performed the experiment he suggested with a series of light pendulums of different length driven by resonance from a heavy pendulum of variable length, my findings did not at all tally with his description. According to Prof. Scripture, a variation in the rate of the driving pendulum should have been followed by irregular jangling of all the driven pendulums. But I did not observe this happening, if the change in length of the driving pendulum was carefully effected without interrupting its motion.
