Does the shape of the parabola in a suspension bridge affect the load it can hold?

We've attemptedto do your homework along with very little acquire. The curvature inside a insides bridge is known as any parabola. And so really does the shape (or perhaps coefficient of by from the situation) impact the volume of insert it could possibly clasp?

The shape is decided on the design calculations of Shear force and Bending moment.... The diagrams of S.F and B.M give equation and the degree of equation decides the shape..... If its a second degree, its a parabola...... The shape not only depends upon the load, but also its distribution....
