How long is a guy wire that reaches from the top of a 15-ft pole to a point on the ground 10 feet from the bottom of the pole?

The guy wire forms a right triangle with the pole and the ground. Using the Pythagorean theorem (a^2 + b^2 = c^2), we can calculate the length of the guy wire. In this case, a = 10 ft, b = 15 ft, so the length of the guy wire (c) is √(10^2 + 15^2) = √(100 + 225) = √325 ≈ 18.03 ft.

What holds a pole up on a jump?

There is nothing that actually holds it in the ground. But there is a 'box' that the pole is planted into, this is like a hole where the pole slides into and stops.

Box: A trapezoidal indentation in the ground with a metal or fiberglass covering at the end of the runway in which vaulters "plant" their pole. The back wall of the box is nearly vertical and is approximately 8 inches in depth. The bottom of the box gradually slopes upward approximately 3-feet until it is level with the runway. The covering in the box ensures the pole will slide to the back of the box without catching on anything. The covering's lip overlaps onto the runway and ensures a smooth transition from all-weather surface so a pole being planted does not catch on the box.

How does velocity affect pole vaulting?

Increased velocity results in ease of upward movement after last stride giving an ease of movement to the vaulter and therefore higher jump.
