## What is the Tension?

**A cable is used to raise a 21 kg urn from an underwater archeological site. There is a 22 N drag force from the water as the urn is raised at a constant speed.**

**What is the tension of the cable?**

**Newton’s Second Law**:* the sum of the forces on an object in a given direction equal the mass of the object times the acceleration of the object in that specific direction.*

Tension – (mass x gravity) – F_{drag} = 0

Tension = (mass x gravity) + F_{drag}

T = (21 x 9.8) + 22

T = 205.8 + 22

t = 227.8

Now round it

**Tension** = 230 N

Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be at the net the simplest factor to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks|
