This tag is for the classical concept of forces, i.e. the quantities causing an acceleration of a body. It expands to the strong/electroweak force only insofar as they act comparable to ‘classical’ forces. Use [tag:particle-physics] for decay channels due to forces and [tag:newtonian-mechanics] or one of the other subtopics of [tag:classical-mechanics] for the dynamics of classical systems.

So there is a weight acting at the centre of a rope causing two equal tension forces either side of it. I’m having difficulty working out why you do not double the tension calculated at the end. For … conceptual about tension. I couldn’t find any similar examples in my textbook. In short can somebody explain to me why you do not double the calculated tension for problems with two tension forces. Edit: thanks for the link just what I needed couldn’t find that one when I looked earlier. …
