How the Science Involved in vehicles pulled by the hair:
To pull the huge trucks or any vehicles, the particular person hair should be long, strong, hairs should be denser in nature and the hair should be fixed deeper in the scalp. The skin on our head is called as the scalp. The people will grow their hairs long, strong and make their hair come together to form a rope structure.
Thus their hair looks like a rope. They tie the end of the hairs to the item which they want to pull. So that, the weight of the vehicle are on the object is equally applied on the every single hair. According to a survey, they discovered that there will 85 thousand to 140 thousand hairs will present on our head scalp based on their color of hairs.
If the person’s hair is in red color and his weight is 100 g then his every hair will resist up to 1.2 g of weight. If any hair has to remove from our head, then we have to apply minimum 100 g of weight on it. It takes more than 100 g to remove hair from it deeper sources.
So that, If the hairs were tied together with a rope, then it is easy to pull the huge amount of weight. Obviously, the pain is generated. We have to withstand it. Being practice this pain will not affect more on us. As the women’s in the circus has long, strong hair, they do this stunt easily.
