### How much tension is there in a vertical rope that holds a 20N bag of apples at rest?

The tension at every point in the rope must be 20N, and it must exert 20N of upward vertical force on the top of the bag. If there's any point in the whole arrangement where the upward and downward forces are not exactly equal, then the mass at that point must be accelerating up or down.

20 N.

### How much tension is in a rope that holds up a 20-N bag of apples?

It's 20N IF the bag is just hanging there and not moving.If the bag is rising or falling, then the tension can be, but isn't necessarily,more or less than 20N.

### How much tension is in a rope that holds up 20-N bag of apples at rest?

The only way the bag of apples can have zero acceleration is that the sum of forces on it is zero. The 20-N downward gravitational force on it must be exactly canceled by some upward force of 20-N. That's the tension in the rope.

### How much tension is in a rope that holds up a N bag of apple at rest?

The only way the bag of apples can have zero acceleration is that the sum of forces on it is zero. The 20-N downward gravitational force on it must be exactly canceled by some upward force of 20-N. That's the tension in the rope.

### How much tension if the bag is supported by 7 vertical strands That is how much tension is exerted in each strand Answer in units of N?

Assuming that all strands are vertical/ parallel to gravity and equally spaced (on a radius) around the centre of gravity then tension on each strand will be equivalent to weight x 9.81 divided by 7 equals tension in Newtons. If the strands are not normal and/or at varying distances from centre of gravity then it becomes a little more complicated. Summ of tension on strands must equal weight of bag. Tension on each strand is a ratio of it's distance from the COG of the furthest most strand. Don't forget the further from perpendicular a strand is the more tension on the strand.

### How can a bridge hold so much weight?

Bridges are able to hold so much weight because of the way they are built and the tension that holds them together

### Is there another phrase for apples to apples?

NO THERE IS NOT! It is Apples to Apples! That's it! The game is so much fun!
