4. The physics class is having a tug of war – the men against the women. For a long time the two teams are pulling with equal force and the knot in the centre of the rope isn’t going anywhere. But then one boy sneezes and stops pulling as hard for just a few seconds. Of course, he quickly recovers, and then pulling with equal strength once again. Who wins the tug of war based on this information? Apply Newton’s law correctly to explain why that is the case
