The 'compromise' lasted until the start of the Civil War. The Civil War, in essence, relates to a failure to compromise.

How did the compromise of 1850 and the kansas Nebraska act reflect sectional tensions?

The compromise of 1850 revisits the long time argument concerning which states should be free and which states should be able to have slaves. Prior to that (and the Kansas Nebraska Act) the Missouri Compromise of 1820 had established a sort of line to divide all the slave states from the free. The Kansas Nebraska act had undone all the effort put into the Missouri Compromise and it allowed for attention so shift back to the issue of slavery. The Missouri Compromise had basically delayed that issue and the Kansas Nebraska Act and The Compromise of 1850 touched up on an increasingly sensitive topic which fuels the first sparks which lead to the Civil War.

How did the Compromise of 1850 lead to the civil war?

The Compromise of 1850 did not lead to the Civil War. It actually postponed it of happening. It consisted of five part. They were: California would admit into the Union as a free state, Slave trade would be outlawed in D.C., the fugitive slave law was to be enforced by Northerners, Texas would give up much of its western land claims for pensions to pay of state debt, and finally the territory of New Mexico and Utah would be able to have popular sovereignty. In short, they all passed and the Union stayed together long enough for the North to get many of the advantages it had during the Civil War. Many people will actually say that this compromise lead to the north achieving victory in the Civil War.
