Hello /sci/, i'm an average guy with slightly above average knowledge in science and i'm completely baffled by the double pendulum.
How come the movement is random? If we had two completely identical closed systems with two completely identical double pendulums in each of them, wouldn't the resulting motion be identical? When i'm saying identical, i mean fucking identical - exactly the same molecular structure on both pendulums, same starting positions, same pressure and temperature in the closed system, exact same amount of air e.t.c.
Why is the produced movement still random? Can anybody explain this to me?
