Experiment that violates Newton's Third Law

g). In accordance with Newton's
Third Law, when
is applied to the coil, it and the magnet should begin to swing in the opposite direction.
Moreover, the swinging amplitude of the lighter coil must be greater than the
of the magnet.
But nothing like this
The amplitude of
the coil is small, but the amplitude of
the magnet is huge. Thus, there is probably a violation of
Newton's third law.
In fact, I
Newton's Third Law
has a limited scope, and the large amplitude of the magnet is due to the release of its internal energy, which occurs under some specific

The results are shocking, but I have already calmed down.
