This Slinky Drop video also includes:
View a Slinky in slow motion to build a better understanding of tension force. A lesson in the Veritasium playlist experiments with a Slinky to analyze the forces acting on it. Using slow-motion video allows scholars to verify the motion of the Slinky with surprising results.
- Recreate the Slinky experiment in class to verify results
- Draw a force diagram to represent the forces on the stretched Slinky
- Expects an understanding of gravity and tension forces
- Pauses to give classes time to make predictions
- Includes an extension of the original video
