video - Eddy Current Tube
Purpose:An illustration of the damping effects of eddy currents on the motion of a falling magnet near the conducting surface of a copper tube.
Hints:Make sure to use non-magnetic (aluminum or brass) clamps on the tube, otherwise the magnet will get "stuck". One might also use the auxiliary camera looking into the tube from the top and projected onto the screen.
