# Search: What is the tension in the cable?

Number of results: 3,170

physics
tension= weight held up= weight chain below+ weight bolder tension= (790+600)g That is the tension at the top, and of course, the tension at the bottom is 790g, so tension varies on the length. If it breaks, it is at the top. Here, tension cannot be greater than 3*600*g. Is it?

isnt v=sqrt(tension) but f*lambda= v= sqrt(tension). So leaving the lambda constant, then f is proportional to sqrt tension 230/220= sqrt (tension/orgtension) square both sides, solve for tension, then find the percent increase.

The tension is smallest at the top, if the speed is in fact enough to make the top without the tension going to zero. At top: Tension + m g = m v^2/R tension = m (v^2/R - g) if the centripetal acceleration is not greater than g, the rope goes slack.

Calc-Based Physics
Look at the triangle formed with the wire and the horizontal, and the bird vertical. At the bird, the force down is 1/2 mg (we are doing only one side, due to symettry). The other force is tension, along the wire. Looks like sinSag=1/2 mg/tension and... tanSag= .2/50 use the ...

An object of mass m is hanging by a string from the roof of an elevator. We want to compare the tension in the string due to the weight of the object under various conditions. Which statements are true? Choices: True, False. A. If the elevator is moving upwards, and speeding ...

Physics
A guitar string has a tension of 100 N and is supposed to have a frequency of 110 Hz. When a standard tone of that value is sounded while the string is plucked, a beat frequency of 2 Hz is heard. The peg holding the string is loosened (decreasing the tension) and the beat ...

Physics
A particular steel guitar string has mass per unit length of 1.79 g/m. and tension of 61.9 N. For the wave speed to be increased by 1.9%, how much should the tension be changed? I tried increasing the wave speed (186 m/s) by 1.9%, plug that into v=sqrt(T/linear mass density), ...

tensionbottom=mg+mv^2/r solve for v. force on set must equal tension... b.total acceleration is a vector of g downward, and mv^2/r along the radial. but tension alone, along the radial, tension=mgcosTheta+mv^2/r but tension and gravity force=net force net force=mass*...

The clothesline is under tension when you hang from it. Why is the tension greater when the clothesline is strung horizontally than whe is hangs vertically?

the tension on the string has to be equal to the weight hanging down. force on the puck equals tension. force=m v^2/r solve for v
