two astronauts are pulling on each other with a rope. one pulls 30 N to the right, the other pulls 20 N to the left. What is the tension in the rope when the force is applied? We can assume the guy pulling 30 N is 50kg and the guy pulling 20 N is 40 kg, but thats not relevant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The rope is being pulled in one direction (force of 30 N times 50 kg mass) subtract the other direction (force of 20 N x 40 kg) = result is the tension in the rope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I want to reconsider. Force of 30 one direction, force of 20 the other. Net force of 10. Tension is `10N
