Homework Help: Stuck on Tension on a Hanging Massive Rope

  1. Nov 14, 2004 #1
    Consider a rope with length l and mass per unit length (lambda), hanging vertically. Let y refer to the height of a point P above the bottom of the rope.

    What is the tension at point P in the rope?

    Thanks alot ppl...

    I know the answer should include y but not sure in what way...
