Quintuple pendulums are an extension of the chaotic double, triple and Quatertuple pendulums problems. In this paper, a planar compound quintuple pendulum was modelled with viscous damping forces. Using Lagrangian energy methods, we derive coupled ordinary differential equations of motion for the system and submit them to analytical manipulation to model the dynamics of the system. We obtain the simulated results. The inclusion of damping in the system has significant effect on the dynamics, highlighting the system's chaotic nature
