It was a very large truck. The truck need to cross a 20 mile long bridge. Unfortunately, the bridge can only hold the weight of 12000 lbs. Even a single pound extra, the bridge would collapse. However the weight of the truck is exactly 12000 lbs. The driver carefully drove and crossed almost 85 percent distance of the bridge. He stopped to get a small break. Suddenly, a bird landed on the truck. Did the bridge collapse? Justify your answers with explanation!
No. The bridge doesn't collapse. The truck almost crossed 85 percent of total distance. Equivalent diesel would have been lost. So the extra weight of the bridge doesn't add any extra load to the bridge.
