Homework Help: Which type of wood

  1. Jan 1, 2004 #1
    This is a question that has been hunting me for ages: which type of wood would be best for constructing a apparatus to hold the largest amount of weight with the smallest mass? I would appreciate it very much if someone can give me some help.

    Typically, it is held that balsa wood is the strongest wood per it's mass in the world.
