Will the pressure be still measured with the same equiptment?Andres Martin said:I think you'll get double the pressure expressed in lbs/sq. in. for the prong and choke, if the prong is on the live ring, because of the "pulley" effect of the chain working on two sides, vs the regular choke, which only works on one. Obviously, the contact areas on the neck for each type are different, but if you make them equivalent mathematically (quadratic function), I think the prong should be roughly double the pressure. Furthermore, I think you should take into account the type of link, as a fursaver will have (I think) higher drag, than a small-linked choke style collar.
Also, your experiment will have to take into account the direction from which "the pull" is coming from, because it can either be quite direct (if a regular choke is placed more towards the left of a dog's neck, e.g.), or quite indirect if the choke is placed correctly. The first will exercise direct pressure, the second will tighten all the way around.
Lbs/sq. in. for the dead rings should be pretty straight forward.
Interesting...FROM A PURELY ACADEMIC perspective...
:lol: :lol: :lol:
Prediction: WAY, WAY, WAY more lbs/sq. in from the prongs. Pssst...why do you think dogs react more to it? The pressure is not over a larger area...it's over a MUCH smaller area.
Seems the direction of pressure is quite different between the choke collar and the pinch.
One is a solid pull. The other is a squeeze.
