Answer to Question #42291 in Mechanics | Relativity for priyanka
A string of length L and mass M is lying on a horizontal table. A force F is applied at one of its ends. Tension in the string at a distance x from the end at which force applied is
If the string is not fixed and doesn't move because of friction, then the tension in the string at a distance x from the end at which force applied is T=F(L−x)/L,
If the table is frictionless and the another end of thestring is fixed, then each point of the string has the same tension T = F.
Answer: (b) F.
