    Inertia law - conservation of energy and momentum - details depend on the particular motion of interest. You mean a coiled fire hose on the wall?

    I think we need to see the original question.

    You can upload the video to some website and link to it.
    If you encode it ogg/theora you can use:

    ... though youtube is a fave.

    note: a random oriented nozzle on the floor will whip back and forth - the cause is similar to how a pendulum goes back and forth. The rest of the coils will move according to how the water moves through them (and the head moves). The water may not be moving at a constant flow rate either.
