Magnet + FAT Copper Pipe = "Anti-Gravity"

By Ben • science • 16 Nov 2013

OK, so it's not anti-gravity, but rather Lenz's Law. As the magnet's magnetic field moves through the copper pipe a current is induced in the pipe that opposes the direction of changing magnetic field. This results in a force that opposes the motion of the magnet- making it appear to fall impossibly slow through the pipe. SCIENCE!
