Hi In a school interview the physics teacher me why a rope attached to the top of a cliff, which would support a climber's weight while dangling gently, would break if the same climber fell from a height while attached to the rope. Im guessing it's due to increased momentum but the rope equations and ratings I've seen don't really reflect that. It's also the kind of thing it's hard to Google. I've even asked a physicist (medical). It's probably quite simple but has been on my mind for 32 years! Any input appreciated.
