  1. Dec 4, 2006 #1
    If you have a rubber band wrapped around a cylinder, how can you tell the tension in the band? What parameters do you need to know?

    If you were familiar with the primary length of the band, the elongation, and the module of elasticity, you could work something out, I guess.
