Let's consider the extensible pendulum as shown in the above figure.
For , the following differential equation holds.
where and k is the stiffness.
This simulator numerically integrates the above differential equation
and visualizes its dynamics.
Similarly to the double pendulum simulator,
chaos can be observed for some initial conditions and parameters.
