## What is Tension?

According to its definition, “Tension is a pulling force applied by a string or chain on another body”.

We will make some assumptions for uncomplicated the whole situation

- The rope strings and cables have no mass.
- The tension remains same throughout the rope.

Tension Formula

The tension formula is articulated as below,

\(T= \left (\frac{2m_{1}m_{2}}{m_{1}+m_{2}} \right )g\)

Law of Tension

The frequency of transverse vibration of a strained string is proportional to the square root of the tension (T) exerted on the string provided the vibrating length ll and mass per unit length mm are kept constant. That is if l and m are constant, ν ∝ √T, Newton (N) is the unit for tension.
