1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If a string is being pulled to the left by 10N and at the same time being pulled to the right by 15N, what is the tension on the string? 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution I always think tension as the force towards one end of the string that balances the force exerted towards the other end of the string. So for this question, I think the tension is 5N to the left. Am I correct? Thanks guys!
