 Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
A group of students is playing tug-of-war. The students on both sides of the rope are pulling with equal force so that the rope is not moving. This is an example of?
 A unbalanced forces B balanced forces C acceleration D displacement
Explanation:

Detailed explanation-1: -In a tug of war, if the two teams are applying equal force on the rope then the net force acting on the rope is zero and hence the rope stays at the same place.

Detailed explanation-2: -In a game of tug-of-war, teams apply forces in terms of pulls on the rope. On the rope, two pulls act in opposite directions. The net force becomes the difference of the two forces (pulls) and the rope moves in the direction of the larger force (pull).

Detailed explanation-3: -Because of Newton’s third law, both the teams pull the rope will same force. If one team pulls harder, then another team will also be pulling harder. The difference which makes one team win and another team lose is the force with which the teams push the ground.

Detailed explanation-4: -Newton’s third law: A body continues its state of rest or motion unless some external unbalanced force changes the state. Complete step-by-step answer: If the two teams exert equal forces, none of the teams wins.
