Answers

a)Selecting a wire for transatlantic cable

For a transatlantic cable resistance to the water is the most important factor.Consider the cable is going to stay at the bottom of the ocean for a long time. Resistance to the salinity of the water is an unavoidable criteria. The ration of strength/weight is very much unavoidable factor.

b)Choosing a wire which you will use for color full art work

Color,cost,stiffness,and availability are the most important factors you may probably want assortment of colors to make the art work more interesting. The wire should be stiff enough to make the art work more interesting and flexible enough to bend

c)Designing the electrical system for airplane

Weight is most important think to choose wire for airplane system. because it affects the total weight of the plane toughness of the wire is also important to resist against chaffing due to vibrations. Resistance of the insulation of the fire also important to resist against the starting or feeding of the electrical fire inside the plane

d)Hanging bird feeder from a tree

Cost,stiffness,availability,strength and resistance has to be considered while hanging a bird feeder from a tree.bare wire should not be selected while considering corrosion is an important factor

e)Designing a piano

Cost,stiffness,availability,strength and resistance to stretching has to be consider while  selecting a wire for designing a piano.

f)Filament of alight bulb

Because of the filament of the light bulb is working with high temperature. The temperature of the wire should have great consideration. Tungsten wire is used because of its high melting point even though it is brittle.
