As shown in the picture there is no force applied over the cable.The self weight of cable is 313.9N(32KG) .And there is a sag of 250mm in the middle .I need to find the tension in the supports.

The length of the complete cable is 11.31m .We r not give the length between two supports.
If you require any further information i plzz do tell.
