Understanding the chain fountain - The Mould Effect

The Mould Effect

Published on 15 Jan 2014 Over 2.5 million viewers, including many physicists, have been astonished by Steve Mould's videos of a chain flowing along its own length from a pot to the floor below. Apparently defying gravity, the chain rises above the pot as a fountain before falling down.
