Q: In a tug of war between 2 athletes, each pulls on the rope with a force of 200N. a) What is the tension in the rope? b) If the rope does not move, what force is each athlete exerting on the ground? I wrote for both a) and b) 200N, and I am unable to confirm this because my textbook has no answers. I am also not very confident with this question, and am unable to justify my answers. Can someone please explain how to do this question?
