If it goes down faster than the force of gravity would cause it to, the shot will apply force on the upper surface and retard that motion. This will continue with every cycle of the motion. The shot will move as it's mass is affected by the vibration, but it will retard the next return motion by it's mass contacting the top of it's space resisting the return motion.
Ah.. icic. Thank you. Now its more clear to me. Glad somebody knew the science behind it all. I was just thinking that the density of it would like reflect the vibration more so than absorb it. But this makes since now. Thanks again.
