Magnets have always been fascinating, but have you ever wondered what would happen if you dropped a magnet in a copper pipe?
Copper is one of the best conducting metals, and therefore has very powerful magnetic properties. Thanks to the internet, the question of “what would happen if you dropped a magnet into a copper pipe?” has been answered. It’s actually much more interesting that you’d think. As the magnet falls it creates a current in the pipe, that actually causes the magnet to fall much slower than normal. It’s really cool to watch.
