**1. Suppose we have a tower at seaside (with length L) under a constant speed of wind.**

Let's assume the force is constant. If we took the drag force equation, only serious variable here is the speed of wind and for a specific time frame let's say for hour or few hours, wind speed and direction do not change so we surmise it's constant.

How can we calculate the tension created all over the tower due to wind? Albeit it's constant it is applied from bottom to the top so there must be a cumulative effect.

How can I formulate this using an integral?

{INTEGRAL -from 0 to L} F dL yields to FL which gives the torque at the top, NOT accruing one.

**2. Torque = Force x Length**
