AbstractThis paper describes an empirical model of polymer dynamics, based on the agitation of millimeter-sized polymeric beads. Although the interactions between the particles in the macroscopic model, and those between the monomers of molecular-scale polymers, are fundamentally different, both systems follow the Worm-Like Chain theory.
