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:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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
