[The third face of the cube]
קבוצה זו של עצים נוטה מאד לצד אחד. האם גם לעצים אחרים יש נטיה לכוון מסוים? אם כן, האם לאותו כיוון? מה הסיבה?

[a question]
These black locusts lean heavily to one side. Do any other campus trees lean? In the same direction? What might cause this?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
מהדשא או הרחבה הקרובה תוכל לראות מספר עצים נטויים לכיוון מזרח (כמו עץ זה). רוחות קיץ מערביות הסיטו את העצים. רוחות גם עוזרות לעצים בפיזור האבקה ו/או הזרעים.

[The Answer to the question]
From the adjacent lawn or nearby pavement, yau can see several trees that lean, all towards the east, like this tree. Summer afternoon winds from the west have bent these trees from their upright positions. But winds also help many types of trees, dispersing their pollen and/or their seeds.
