Explain why a lon

Answer :

Carrying a pole helps the walker increase their rotational inertia (a measure of an object’s opposition/resistance to change in its direction of rotation), which aids in maintaining stability while walking over the narrow rope.

The pole also adds more weight below the center of gravity of the walker, which is another bonus for maintaining balance. By adjusting the place of the pole, one can balance easily their body and can walk on the rope. Finally, the line of the weight of total system must pass through a vertical line drawn to the rope.


The Figure below depicts the rope walker carrying the pole on tight rope.
