## How do you calculate tension sample?

**Tension Formulas – How to Calculate Tension Force**

- Tension can be easily explained in the case of bodies hung from chain, cable, string etc. …
- T = W ± ma. …
- Case (iv) If the body moves up or down with uniform speed, tension; T = W. …
- T=m(g±a) …
- As tension is a force, its SI unit is newton (N).

## What is the formula of tension force?

Tension Formula. The tension on an object is equal to the mass of the object x gravitational force plus/minus the mass x acceleration. **T = mg + ma**. **T = tension, N, kg-m/s ^{2}**.
