"In real life you use the catenary shape to know how much cable to place between two poles in high power transmission lines. Too much cable and it sags too much making it a hazzard. Too little cable and it breaks due to high tension as it stretches. Quite important to get it right when you have 768kV @ 6000 Amps through the cable."
