## Main Question or Discussion Point

hi~

i need to determine the tension

this is for a computer simulation where the weight of the cable is not important. this is why i condensed tension in the formula down to

is it possible to find the tension with the given information?

i need to determine the tension

*in the equation of the hanging cable***a****y=acosh(x-h)/a+k**with a known length and known location of end points. i figured out how to determine the horizontal translation*but i need***h***in order to do it and to have the complete equation.***a**this is for a computer simulation where the weight of the cable is not important. this is why i condensed tension in the formula down to
