How many matchsticks to span a gap twice as far? with a bridge twice as wide?

How much weight will the structure take? What is the side profile of the structure?










What weight, in pennies, is equivalent to the pounds supported by this bridge?






When does it break? (And since I have done this once: is it better then mine?)


















Does the distance between the two side structures factor in to the strenght of the bridge


What is the total cost of the bridge if each stick were 3 cents and each drop of glue connecting them was 1 cent?
