### 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.

###### Asked in Crocheting and Knitting

### Substitute for worsted weight yarn?

The common suggestion is to substitute two strands of sport
weight for 1 strand of worsted weight.
However, everyone's tension is different. If your pattern has a
gauge, I would suggest you crochet a small swatch and see if the
gauge matches, using your tension. If it is too large, there are
other variations you can try. 1 strand of fingering or sock yarn
with 1 strand of sport or DK yarn, for example. Of course, that
would necessitate having or buying more yarn.

###### Asked in Crocheting and Knitting

### Can two strands of medium weight yarn equal chunky weight yarn?

If you are making an item where it is important that it come out
exactly the same size the pattern indicates, then you need to make
a gauge swatch to be sure you are choosing compatibly sized yarns.
Not all medium weight yarns are equal, nor are all chunky weight
yarns equal.
You can find yarn weight information at the Craft Yarn Council's
web site.
In general terms
Two strands fingering equal one strand sport.
Two strands sport equal one strand worsted.
Two strands worsted equal one strand bulky
Chunky and bulky are similar but not equal. Chunky is considered
#5 and Bulky #6.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Weight and Mass

### What is the tension in a rope that is supporting a 4.2 kg bucket?

There are two forces acting on the bucket which are the Tension
and the Weight.
Tension is directed upward and Weight is directed downward.
Since the bucket is either moving at constant velocity, or if
its remaining still, the Tension would have to equal in magnitude
to the weight.
Weight = Fg = Mass(in kgs) times Gravity= 4.2 kg x 9.8
m/s^2=41.46 Newtons
Tension would be equal to Fg, which means that Tension would
also be 41.46 Newtons.

###### Asked in Physics

### How do you calculate tension of hanging object?

If the object hangs from a weightless string or thread, the
tension in
the thread is equal to the weight of the object.
If there is weight distributed all the way from the ceiling to
the bottom of
whatever is hanging, then the tension at every point is equal to
the weight
of everything below that point.

###### Asked in Science

### When two forces are working in the opposite directions are not the same strength?

It happens when 1 force is having larger magnituge and the other
is less in magnitude ........
and then the forces does not balance each other
Take the example of weight and tension of a body connected by
string . weight and tension are always opposite in the
direction
if the weight is suppose 12 newton and tension is 10 newton ,
then same thing will happen , they can't balance each other ......
as the strength of weight is more than tension

###### Asked in Hair

### How are hair extensions applied?

Believe it or not hair extensions are actually "glued" to your
existing hair. A bonding agent is applied to the extention and then
to the root of your existing hair and basically they are then stuck
together. Braiding or weaving will give the extentions a more
natural look.
Hair extensions is a strand by strand human hair procedure. They
can also be light weight extension hair to provide a more natural
look and they are applied by sticking the end of the respective
hair strands.
