- TL;DR Summary
- If I wrap a belt around my waist and pull, what is the relationship between the pulling force and exerted pressure to my waist?
I have following setup where a non-elastic belt is wrapped around an elastic object, like leather belt around waist. When I pull the belt with force F, it tightens around the elastic object and the belt exerts force to the elastic object. I would like to know what is the relationship between the pulling force F and the exerted pressure (or force) to the elastic object.
