Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary

I've just added the definition: "Condition of being held in a state between two or more forces, which are acting in opposition to each other". The Concise Oxford English Dictionary (that I have access to online) defines tension as: "a strained state or condition resulting from forces acting in opposition to each other". I hope this doesn't constitute a copy-vio - I don't know how you deal with such things on Wiktionary, so I'll let the community here deal with it. Thanks. Cormaggio 12:01, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
