    \(\Huge\color{red}{Tension} \) When a string, thread or a rod is stretched, a force comes into play known as tension. It is \(\Large\color{blue}{pulling} \) in nature.

    Consider a block connected with a string such that other end of string is connected with a fixed platform. |dw:1440745098195:dw|

    In the figure shown a mass less and an in-extensible chord passes over a mass less and smooth pulley suspended from a fixed platform. The two ends of chord carries two blocks m1 and m2. If we assume m1>m2, then block m1 moves downward and m2 upward with same acceleration a. Consider a portion PQ on the right side of pulley. Let Tp and Tq be the tension ends of portion PQ |dw:1440757592023:dw|

    The portion PQ has same acceleration in downward direction. Therefore Tq-Tp=(mass of PQ)*a Tq-Tp=0*a Tp=Tq The tension at every point of chord on the right side of pulley is samee.

    now for acceleration, For that let T be the commonn tension at every point of string.

    Adding equation 1 and 2 (Use mathematics :D) we get a=(m1-m2)g/m1+m2 here m1>m2 //if you are not able to solve let me know, I will solve it.

    \[a =\frac{ (m _{1}-m_{2} )g}{ m _{1}+m _{2} }\] here m1>m2 Putting the value of a in equation 1 \[m _{1}g-T=m _{1}\frac{ (m _{1} -m _{2})g}{ m _{1}+m _{2} }\]

    we get \[T=\frac{ 2m _{1} m _{2}}{ m _{1} +m _{2}} g\]

    Case1) is simple (which I did above) |dw:1440764462862:dw| \[a=\frac{ m _{1} g-m _{2}g}{ m _{1}+m _{2}}\] Always remember \[a=\frac{ Net~pulling~force }{ Total~mass~of~system}\]
