When a magnet is placed on the outside of a Cu or Al pipe we know that the magnet will not stick to the side of the pipe. However if we drop the magnet through the inside of the hollow Cu pipe the magnet will slowly fall while turning at the same time. Why? What process is actually happening here? Someone told me it was Lens Law but couldn't explain the concept. I have 9th graders in a Physical Science course, I would like to share this with them but only if I can explain this concept in a way that will satisfy them.
