# Proof: - Easy or tough?

Prove(mathematically as well by arguments) that the tension in a rope(massive or massless) will be along the rope everywhere.

I didnt Know what type of proof you want But In my opinion if you take very very small element of Rope Then if rope is moving ( Say in downward direction ) Then on that element Net force is only due to tension and that must be in downward direction because it has to move in downward direction ( since rope is inextensible )

Am I missed something ?

I don't think that it has any analytical Proof ! It is only based on feeling ! What do you think ?
