Off beat Metronomes gradually sync together — WHY?

30 09 2012

The key is the surface where the metronomes are on. Because the surface is unstable, the energy from each metronomes is coupled through the unstable surface to surrounding metronomes, and gradually synchronize the pendulums’ swing together.
If you try it on a solid surface, they wil never be in sync.
Interesting experiment!!
