Let's say theres a stick, and two persons are holding the extremities: Person A ----------stick---------- Person B Both are pulling the stick with equal forces. At a certain moment, Person B releases it and instantly Person A knows it becase he can now pull the stick to himself. Why can't I say that information in this case traveled faster than light? It seems to me that there is no delay between Person B releasing and Person A being able to notice it. I know this can't be true, but I fail to find the answer. Thanks in advance.
