1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 3. A bird feeder of large mass is hung from a tree limb. A cord attached to the bottom of the feeder has been left dangling free. Curiosity gets the best of a child, who pulls on the dangling cord in an attempt to see what's in the feeder. The dangling cord is cut from the same source as the cord attached to the limb. ls the cord between the feeder and the limb more likely to snap with a slow continuous pull or a sudden down- ward pull? Give your reasoning. 2. Relevant equations - 3. The attempt at a solution I think that likelihood for the cord to snap is the same, because the forces acting on the cord are the same in both ways. What do you think?
