If you hold a length of string taut between your hands, any force that you exert on one end of the string is transmitted through the string to the other hand. This "force" transmitted by the string is called the tension in the string. How does the tension in different parts of the string compare?

Suppose you hang a 5 Newton weight from a string, and hold the other end of the string in your hand. If the weight (and the string and your hand) is at rest, then the weight exerts a 5 Newton downward force on the lower end of the string, and you exert a 5 Newton upward force on the upper end of the string. Then the force tranmitted by the string is 5 N.so 5N  is the tension in spring.
