Have you had an experience in a Tug-of-War competition-or have you get involved in it?????. were the rope is pulled in opposite direction by the competing teams.The rope is said to be under Tension. Whenever two parts of a body are being pulled away from each other that body is said to be under TENSION .Assuming you are standing ,your two legs are supporting the weight of your body,which is acting downwards,while the floor is a kind of resistor,which is pushing upwards on your feet.therefore,TENSION has to do with pulling while thrust deal with pushing.
