C for catenary cable, need help

  1. Oct 28, 2004 #1
    Can somebody teach me a better way to solve the equation of catenary cable to find the value of c? If there is no other better alternative, can you tell me how to estimate a value for the trial and error method.

    Do you understand what c I am referring to? I don't know if the sign convention used by me is the same as you. It is the imaginary point located below the lowest point of a catenary cable, which acts as origin. Please tell me should you need further explaination.
