What causes tension in a spring?

Tension in a spring occurs when an external force is applied, resulting in the stretching or elongation of the spring. This applied force displaces the atoms or molecules within the spring material from their equilibrium positions, leading to the spring’s ability to store potential energy. Springs are widely used in various applications, ranging from mechanical […]
