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.

    simply add to forces to get tension. visualize if one end is tied to wall, tension would b equal to force of pull of one guy only. but if both, it should b greater
