When direct current is passed through a spring it is compressed but when Alternating current is passed through same spring it starts oscillating. Why?

    @Abhisar There are AC solenoids, google them and read their method of operation.

    Oh, so because in AC current the polarity keeps reversing and there is a point when current is zero that's why it keeps oscillating?
