- Homework Statement
- A uniform rope of weight

hangs between two trees. The ends of the rope are same height, and they each make an angle

with the trees. Find :

a): The tension at the either end of the rope.

b): The tension in the middle of the rope.

- Relevant Equations
- F=ma

I know that I can draw an FBD and apply Newton's 2nd law to find the relevant equations. But my question here is why is the mg vector or the weight of the entire rope same at every point on it I mean to say that if the mass of the entire rope is say M then how can a small point on the rope also have the same mass thus giving the same value for weight Mg(acting downwards) at every point on the rope?
