Suspended ropes

  1. Apr 4, 2006 #1
    I have some questions about the equation governing a suspended rope. I have looked in diffy-Q books and searches a little bit on google and haven't found a satisfactory answer. specifically I am interested in the system with the following assumptions:
    1. rope is fixed at both ends
    2. rope is linearly elastic (f=kx type law)
    3. rope has linear density lambda

    most of the derivations I have seen make simplifying assumtions about the
    rope that it doesn't stretch or that tensions are colinear
    on a differential segment.

    Thanks in advance
