Hey everyone, I love that people are coming up with different theories and stuff besides what is taught in government supervised schooling.
Just wanted to add that I thought the spacing between the first few springs is a larger distance at the top of the slinky because it is supporting more weight. The first spring is carrying the weight of the entire slinky. The one on the bottom is not being pulled down by all that weight, so naturally it would have a smaller distance in its spacing. Hope that makes sense.
Still, some interesting ideas going on here 🙂 Keep the wheels turning! I’d love to see that wood/lead explanation posted somewhere. Maybe ill be able to find it elsewhere online, as one member mentioned it was borrowed from somewhere else…
