When 2 unequal vertical forces act on the 2 ends of a vertical rope, how do I calculate the tension at the midpoint?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First I calculated the net acceleration of the rope, then I choose any 1 half of the rope for fbd of it and then where and how does the tension act?
