The goal of the puzzle is to remove the wooden stick from the jar by fiddling with it.

Is it possible to mathematically/physically prove that the puzzle is solvable, given the precise dimensions of all the components?

  • $\begingroup$ Also, the dimensions aren't known. I was talking more on a theoretical basis. $\endgroup$ – Pixel S Apr 11 at 12:59
