• Timing and spacing for swinging motion slows in and out of the apexes, similar to falling.
• Swinging motion is nearly uniform (constant spacings) through the center of the swing.
• Texture of the timing and spacing is enhanced when the swinging motion is in perspective.
• Period of a swinging pendulum varies with the length; longer the pendulum to greater the time it takes to complete each swing.
• When the swinging amplitude is large then the speed is fast but the period time is unchanged.
