VERA ALFARO, Pablo  and  SALAS RODRIGUEZ, Joaquín. Uncertainty Calculation on the Visual Measurements of the Parameters of a Foucault Pendulum. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.4, pp.357-369. ISSN 2007-9737.

We present a method for determining the uncertainty in the measurement of parameters that describe the dynamics of a Foucault's pendulum. In the document, we review how these parameters can be obtained. Then, we propose a method for evaluating the uncertainty in their determination. We illustrate the method with experimentation made on a 28m height pendulum located at 20° 35' north latitude.

Keywords : Foucault Pendulum; Uncertainty; Camera Calibration; Computer Vision.
