Describes a model in which a steel ball bounces in synchronism with a vertically oscillating piston. The period of oscillation can be varied over a 3:1 range with the amplitude kept constant. As the period is increased, the ball bounces higher, contrary to the intuition of most observers. (Author/GS)
