An approximate and an analytical solution to the carousel-pendulum problem

Abstract : We show that an improved solution to the carousel-pendulum problem can be easily obtained through a first-order Taylor expansion, and its accuracy is determined after the obtention of an unusable analytical exact solution, advantageously replaced by a numerical one. It is shown that the accuracy is unexpectedly high, even when the ratio length of the pendulum to carousel radius approaches unity.
