Answer :

Take two threads. One made of cotton (A Natural fibre) and the other made of nylon (A synthetic fibre). Attach one end of both the ropes to a rigid support. Now, on the other end, hang a particular amount of weight. Keep adding weights until the cotton thread breaks. You will notice that Nylon has a greater tensile strength than Cotton.

More weight is required to break the nylon rope than the cotton rope.
