In addition, the manufacturing approach used to connect individual wires to the connector (e.g., soldering) could be susceptible to bending or other cable movement in particular orientations.
Many electronic cables are constructed from several distinct wires connected to connectors and surrounded by a non-conductive sheath.
To test his theory that string will always form loops he asked schools to conduct experiments, jumbling up regular parcel string to varying lengths and then repeating this process with each string having its ends joined, forming a loop.
