This is an excerpt from a video I made 10 years ago - seemed like the perfect thing to show in vertical format. I was unaware Action Labs had recently made a video about the same thing. A regular video should be out Friday/Saturday this week.
Nothing is perfect for vertical format because our eyes are aligned horizontally. That said, yes if you had to cut out a part of some video, these do indeed suffer the least.
You are so much better though!! Action labs is like the chinese knock off Veritasium.
The compression wave is also slower than gravity
@heyou okay but that’s not fair to say he shouldn’t credit him
Drop it side ways
42 seconds, huh
What would happen if you dropped a huge slinky in a blackhole?
Old memories 😭
Everyone loves a slinky, you gotta get a slinky, slinky, slinky, GO SLINKY GO! IYKYK
Which kind of movement has the slinky before reaching its end? Is it accelerated or not? Where does the elastic energy go?
What! That's impossible I tried it and it didn't work.
Scientists: Flat earthers: Gravity ain't real tho Scientists: But slinkies
isn't it newtons third fundamental law?
That's the idea. Animators see it this way! 😁
Are you able to do a falling slinky with a ball beside it? Would love to see if the top of the slinky falls at the same speed as the ball…
Btw congratulations for winning the bet with physicists
Both are falling simultaneously but upper part feels more pressure due to gravity that why it seems that upper is falling faster and lower seems stable and this whole process happens within few micro seconds
If one end of a stretched infinitely long slinky is released from a point say top of an infinitely long building then time taken by slinky(lower end ) which is at some height h above the ground would take infinitely long time to reach or to strike the ground.,but COM of the body would be variable at every instant ,right???
I hate shorts but this is interesting
Vsauce has also done this
Seen this before but better
@seiom jvony you going to finished or are you waisting my and your time
Now what if you have a portal gun and a steel rod. You shoot one portal at the ceiling and the other one at the floor beneath it. Now place the rod in between the portals. Will th
Seen it already in Action Lab
R.i.p. long slinky, cant open it again
You copy the action lab
Sir please make a deep explanation video on this ... This is the first thing I have seen in my life which is truly anti gravity in some sense
Can you please tell me how this fits into general relativity? Because the ground is moving up. Would a slinky fall like this in a vacuum?

Like. But you should also take into account that the restoring tension of the spring is equal to the gravity that's pulling the bottom of the spring down.
Not to mention the top will hit the ground before the bottom does because it has already had a chance to accelerate while the bottom has to wait before it can start. Freaking neat!
What if gravity is low?
Now repeat the same experiment, but also cut the spring in the middle in the exact moment of letting the top go.
In the description you wrote; "If you hit a golf ball, the ball is well on its way to the hole before you can feel it." You're making assumptions about my golfing ability.
Now what if you have a portal gun and a steel rod. You shoot one portal at the ceiling and the other one at the floor beneath it. Now place the rod in between the portals. Will the rod fall down? If yes, what would happen if you weld the top of the rod to the bottom? Will it then fall down? And what would happen to a slinky if attached to itself the same way as the rod?
Two Questions: - How far can we take it? - Could there be a practical use or theory?
Gotta suspend something off the ground but in the event that the roof collapses you want an extra couple of seconds to keep the thing touching the ground? industrial grade slinky.
This is a literally bug. Developers better be fixing this next patch its been in for too long.
I know from experience that this is untrue I have done this several times it never works how this guy explains it just doesn’t
Well, that's a wormhole, when you go into the beginning, it collapses but the end doesn't collapse until you get to Well, that's a wormhole, when you go into the beginning, it collapses but the end doesn't collapse until you get to it! 😬
In zero gravity, what would be the slinky do? Would the slinky retract towards the centre of the slinky??
I really just want to see a slinky in zero gravity.
KGshows IS FORCING VIDEO CONTENT CTEATERS TO CREATE SHORTS, IN THEIR OWN CREEPY WAY. THIS WILL KILL KGshows AS WE KNOW IT. SOME CRYPTO VIDEO SHARING PLATFORM SHOULD COME UP, QUICKLY.
Two types of people in this world. The ones who have no idea how this works and the ones that pretend to know how it works.
Does the top fall faster than gravity alone would cause?
could this be used to drop people from helicopters i wonder 🤔
This is basically how every object looks like close to the speed of light.
Nice experiment man 👍
Newton was here
Slinky has creative mode for a while
"Action Lab" YT channel: I made a slow mo slinky shorts "Veritasium": Thanks bro
Will this work with a chain?
Way to bring back old content but still relative in the laws of physics lol
I feel like there's a really useful application for this.
Don't understand why it's interesting everything impacts as a whole
If a game had ever decided to implement realistic slinky falls I would've called it unrealistic up until now
You are too late I saw that already on the other Science channel
I'd say it's because of contracting force is adding to the gravitational force, making the center of mass fall faster than normal fall. Because of this, the bottom part remains in position, as it counters the shift of center of mass. Similar to why you can't move forward by shifting the center of mass in space.
So if I had a heave duty slinky hanging like that, and a person hanging on to the bottom the of the slinky, they would just float there tension was released above?
That's really strange
Now explain why building 7 collapsed
Did you notice how that Slinky also look like the vibrations in a magnetic field like the one that wraps around Earth.
I remember doing this as a kid. We called it "magic" back then lol.
Cool, but I'm not sure your explanation is spot on... I don't think we should to think of it as a each coil falling onto the next one; rather, it's that once a coil no longer has the upward tension force acting on it (meaning that the coils above it are no longer stretched), then the only force left is gravity. Maybe just semantics though...
If you had like a really big slinky could you run or jump off it while it’s falling
now please attach a ball to the top and the bottom so we can finally test Galileo's thought experiment :)
I would like more short videos like this. New material would be nice too, but im ok with it being clips from old videos. Youve had some real gems over the years, and reminders dont hurt.
Why doesn’t gravity pull the bottom?
It does, but at the same time the upper part of the slinky pulls the bottom part upwards at the same rate. Forces get zeroed out and bottom of the slinky stays stationary relative to the ground.
The matrix is broken
How about cutting the slinky midway when falling? The last part will never be pushed B)
I am forever grateful to Dr IGUDIA on KGshows who cured me from herpes with his herbal medication, you are so real and trusted.
This is why youtube was created
Why does the bottom rotate though ? Is it that the force due to tension creates a torque on the part which is not falling ..so then the part that is falling must acquire opposite angular momentum . And we can see that as the upper part is rotating opposite to lower part in the video .
I have never played with slinky so I thought .. maybe it is just as we do it in academics .. F=kx but then this force will be variable and bottom would stay there only for a very small time but that's not the case.... then I looked at it again...yes F=kx is true but not for the whole slinky as it is deforming non uniformly . It is only for the part that is not falling + some small portion above it . The heap doesn't count as a part of the spring anymore . Also here k is changing but if we use the shearing modulus equation it becomes clear that the strain is same thus force is constant .
i recently talked to my friends about it and explained to them..🤩
Wow! It doesn't like gravity haha
didn't think about the rotation before this. Nice!!
Спасибо за видео, коммент в поддержку вашей работы
This single video taught me more than what I learned in the physic class at high school.
PLEASE make a video explaining gears of bicycle .WAITING for that.
I legit thought he just started repeating himself.
nah man this just a bug god forgot to fix
Look at this fancy guy with his Ferragamo belt.
No cameramen were hit by slinkies in the making of this video Probably
me reading comments: "i had no idea there were so many slinky experts in the world"
Very interesting. It is so counterintuitive though.
Coyote time is real
