sag in rope due to mass of rope ?

then u wud take 'mg = 2T cos(theta)' is it im not sure how the entire mass of rope gets manifested at center ?

that's the tension at the end of the rope , but i'm looking for the tension in the middle

oh tension can be different thru out the rope in this system ?

since the rope has mass... things may not be ideal hmm

Is it in a vaccuum with a neutral charge?

yes the rope is uniform density , and has a total mass of m

Tension at the middle? Where is the middle?

yes i think we can make these assumptions

yeah in the middle of the symmetric rope

It would depend on the length between tethers and the length of the rope.

So if we're leaving this general, it's just based on the angle, which doesn't really matter to us though.

Unless they're telling us the length of the rope and the length of the distance it's stretched across, then we're screwed.

the tensions should be a function of (m,θ,g)

So the rope's not moving right? That means the forces up and forces down should be equal, right? So... mg=2Tcos(theta) Solve for T, problem solved.

That's assuming all the mass is in the center?

Since it has a uniform density, center of mass is there, so it's safe assumption.
