A sharp axe cuts the long earlier than a blunt axe. Explain why.
A sharp axe has a sharp edge which means edge has a minimum area as compared to the rest of the axe. As the area is small, the pressure is large and thus easier to cut trees. Whereas blunt axe has larger edge thus exerting less pressure and hence it takes time to cut trees.
