How does tension between train carriages vary?
« on: 06/02/2011 17:30:03 »
Kelli Berry asked the Naked Scientists:
   How do I compare the tension in the coupling between the first two cars of a train with the tension in the coupling between the last two cars when (a) the trains speed is constant and (b) the train is accelerating?
What do you think?
