Resonance—Surprises in the Intricate Dance
Lecture no. 10 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity
Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Resonance happens whenever a small periodic force produces a large effect on a periodic motion—for example, when you push a child on a swing. Learn how resonance due to gravitational interactions between three bodies can lead to amazing phenomena with planets, asteroids, and rings of planets.
