Magnets Down a Copper Pipe

  1. May 7, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    So i had to make a thesis and hypothesis for this lab where i have magnets in bundles all of the same mass some with more magnets in them than others. I have to do a lab and an analysis of how it relates to forces and energy and work

    2. Relevant equations

    Does the bundle go slower or faster with more magnets? why?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    What i think is that the more magnets in the bundle the slower it descends because it is more magnetic. but i don't really understand how i would explain this or how it really works.
