I plotted a 10 meter long Foucault Pendulum (one that swings in both the x & y directions) with respect to the earthâ€™s rotation in Quebec Canada by using C and its standard libraries. I took the second-order equations to obtain velocity and I used that to determine by how many x & y degrees the pendulum will move for each time step.
