Using a pendulum as an example: a pendulum swings from left to right (first swing) and then swings back again right to left (second swing). A complete oscillation is composed of both swings.

The swing of a pendulum is called an oscillation. The furthest point in each oscillation is the amplitude.

To swing from side to side or up and down.

As the length of a pendulum increases, so does the time taken for one swing (the period of oscillation). A shorter pendulum will make swings more quickly than a longer pendulum.

its the same thing just one you swing at and one you watch go by. (reet!)

I think its to do with the patent in didcars which was the original

There is no special SI unit of amplitude. It is the maximum lenght of an oscillation swing. The maximum displacement y is the amplitude:

the beam is a long rectangule and the bar is a like a stick you walk on it and you swing on it

Yes, the length of a pendulum affects its swing. The oscillation will be longer with a longer length and shorter with a shorter length.

Assuming no friction, the period of oscillation would be the same if the length from the center of mass of the milk or bread to the pivot point is equal.

The only difference is that a Grand Slam will score 4 runs on a single swing of a bat whereas just a solo Homerun will score only 1 run on a single swing of a bat.

I believe that spin is exerted on to the ball by the hand, swing is how the ball moves in the air and turn is what the ball does off the pitch. If you're asking about cricket.

Swing is not a complete replacement for the AWT-it is built on top of the AWT architecture. Swing simply gives you more capable user interface components. Even though AWT is powerful, there are many compelling reasons as to why Swings is a more successful and preferred choice for UI programmers. They are: 1. Swing has a rich and convenient set of user interface elements. 2. Swing has few dependencies on the underlying platform. This means that it is less prone to platform-specific bugs. 3. Swing gives a consistent user experience across platforms.

they're measuring differences in oscillation, so they probably want a -12 and +12 swing with 0 as the base line

Java Swings is a technology that is used to create User Interface Components using Java. Swing Events are a part of this technology that is used to handle user actions like click of a button or closing the component etc

the difference between total negative and positive swing. so a 10vAC PtP will be 20vAC

This could describe a regular vibration or oscillation. An example could be the swing of a pendulum.

The motion is likely not to be a simple harmonic motion as required for the formula for the period of a pendulum to work properly. The angle of swing is likely to reduce.

javax.swing is a GUI package in Java. The Frame class is an element of the java.awt GUI package.

The physical parameters of a simple pendulum include (1) the length of the pendulum, (2) the mass of the pendulum bob, (3) the angular displacement through which the pendulum swings, and (4) the period of the pendulum (the time it takes for the pendulum to swing through one complete oscillation).

A Java Applet is a class which is intended to be run from within a web browser. Java Swing is an entire package of classes and interfaces which is dedicated to providing a comprehensive collection of GUI elements.
