The slinky bothers me. Why doesn't the bottom of the slinky fall at all until the rest of the slinky coil catches up with it?
Seems to me the slinky bottom should continue to fall as the top of the slinky is coiling back up ( or down ha) due to gravity and the coils own
Only thing I can thing of is the spring effect it countering the speed of the fall at the exact same rate of speed, making it seem like the bottom is
not falling. But I'm not comfortable with that.
