The stringless pendulum demonstrates simple harmonic motion. Students and other observers will witness the period of an oscillating body from a different perspective than the standard string and ball. The period of the steel ball can be measured and the distance to a focal point can be calculated to compare the demonstration to a classic pendulum.
