Tension

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

tension compressionTension, abbreviated as T, is the force (pulling or stretching) acting on a material.

 

Formulas that use Tension

\(\large{ T =   W + m \; a }\)   
\(\large{ T =   m \; g + m \; a }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ T }\) = tension

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

\(\large{ g }\) = gravitational acceleration

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ W }\) = weight
