in a lecture demonstration, a 3.0-m-long vertical string with ten bolts tied to it at equal intervals is dropped from the ceiling of the lecture hall. the string falls on a tin plate, and the class hears the clink of each bolt as it hits the plate. the sounds will not occur at equal time intervals. why? will the time between clinks increase or decrese newar the end of the fall? how could the bolts be tied so that the clinkis occur at equal intervals?

    Does not the velocity of fallingincrease depending on how far fell? That is, the upper most bolt willbe traveling the fastest, so it gains some on the lower bolts.
