If a rope were being pulled in opposite directions with two opposing forces, one being 5 N and the other 7 N, what is the tension of the rope?
The Attempt at a Solution
Since the rope would be accelerating in the direction of the force of 7 N, the reaction of the rope which I think is the tension should be 5 N, though I'm not really sure of this. It can't be 7 N, because otherwise the rope wouldn't move right? (is that called being in equilibrium?)
