    Product Description


    1.  Hold chain in one hand allowing it to hang freely.
    2.  Rotate chain to get a half-wave length (notice that  there is approximately a quarter wave at its loose end).
    3.  Rotate chain faster to get a full wave length and notice that the half wave at the loose end is  shorter than the half wave at the fixed end because of tension caused by the weight of the chain below it.
