Tension

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

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

Tension Formula

(Eq. 1)  \(\large{ T =   W + m \; a }\)         

(Eq. 2)  \(\large{ T =   m \; g + m \; a }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ T }\) = tension

\(\large{ a }\) = acceleration

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

\(\large{ m }\) = mass

\(\large{ W }\) = weight
