Numerical simulation of eight pendulums with identical masses coupled by a string with a comparably large string constant. After the first pendulum starts moving, the energy periodically moves between the pendulums. The lamps above each pendulum indicate the sum of potential and kinetic energy the pendulum below: The energy increases from black via blue to white, and the status (black white) of the upper hemispherical lamp indicates the pendulum with the (at the moment) highest energy.
