Suppose you use a piece of fishing line to hang a large object from the ceiling. The line has a test strength of 125 lbs. Convert this to newtons, and determine the maximum mass that can be supported before the line breaks

  • physics- please help! -

    1 lb =0.454 kg
    125 lb= 56.7 kg (max mass)

    mg=56.7•9.8 =555.66 N
