Problem 37E

A heavy bird sits on a clothesline. Will the tension in the clothesline be greater if the line sags a lot or if it sags a little?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

ANSWER: When the bird sits at the clothesline, the line bends downwards because of the weight of the bird. The bending causes a tension in the wire or string. The tensions at the two sides of the bird actually balance the weight of the bird, so everything could be in equilibrium. As the mass of the bird is constant and the force due to the weight is also constant, the tension will be same whether the string bends more or less. Only...
