How is the Golden Gate Bridge like a Parabola?

Yes it is a parabola because in the architectural blueprint the equation y=x^2 was shown. Another obvious way to tell its the curve that the suspension ropes make in the middle and two outsides. I happen to know this question because I live only a few minutes from the bridge.

Why is the Golden Gate Bridge called golden when it is actually orange?

Actually, the term Golden Gate refers to the Golden Gate Strait which is the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The strait is approximately three-miles long by one-mile wide with currents ranging from 4.5 to 7.5 knots. It is generally accepted that the strait was named "Chrysopylae" or Golden Gate by Army Captain John C. Fremont, circa 1846. It is said it reminded him of a harbor in Istanbul named Chrysoceras or Golden Horn.

How many workers did it take to built the Golden Gate Bridge?

There is no accurate way to answer this question, since unfortunately, many of the records from that time have been lost. We do know that it took four years (1933-1937) to build the bridge, and that there were ten major contractors who were involved; they also made use of sub-contractors. Nearly all of the workers came from Bay Area labor unions. Local historians have estimated that several thousand workers were involved in such a massive project, a welcome opportunity during the era of the Great Depression, when jobs were scarce.

there was about 50 people who worked on the Golden Gate Bridge

11 men as a result of falls from the Golden Gate Bridge whilst it was being built.

During the bridge's construction, a safety net was set up beneath it, significantly reducing the expected number of deaths for such a project. Whilst 11 men were killed from falls during construction, approximately 19 men were saved by the safety net. 10 of the deaths occurred near completion, when the net itself failed under the stress of a scaffold fall.

What would happen if the golden gate bridge collapsed?

Well it definatly wouldn't be good. All the cars on the bridge would have a chance of being crushed by falling supports, as for cyclists.........well I'm sure you can imagine. It would probably be featured on the news, blamed on another country, and be considered a national tragedy. People would grieve over the ones they've lost, and the survivors would probably be happy to just be alive.
