Resonant Pendulum

Can you move a 3-ton rock with a piece of string?

You can really move mountains when you put your mind to it. In this case, try swinging this heavy stone by timing your pulls and tugs to the stone's natural swinging rhythm. Easy does it! A small magnet is attached to a light string, and is enough to pull the boulder just enough with each swing to get it going.
