Wave pendulum: Sit back and relax with physics

wave pendulum

(CBS) - Wow. So, there's a whole lot of news going on this Monday morning. Here at CBS News, we are dedicated to bringing you the latest information on all the events taking place this week. But we also know - especially here at The Feed - that sometimes you just want to sit back, take a deep breath, and relax. To that end, here is a wave pendulum. Enjoy 79 seconds of soothing, elegant physics.

This zen clip comes courtesy of San Diego State University's physics department. The description dryly notes that "the results are visually intriguing." Indeed. It's important sometimes to take a step back and breathe. There's nothing like simple, rational, black-and-white physics to bring a sense of calm.

Okay, now back to work.
