(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In a tug of war two boys exert an equal force of 30N. What is the nett force on the rope?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Since there is a tensile force on the rope will it be 30 N?

(When a spring replaces the rope it will elongate by 'x'. So the force will be kx

where k is the spring constant)
