(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Arlene is to walk across a "high wire" strung horizontally between two buildings 10.0 apart. The sag in the rope when she is at the midpoint is 10.0 , as shown in the figure .

If her mass is 47.0 , what is the tension in the rope at this point?

2. Relevant equations

Tension=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the mass is 47 kg but I don't know how to find the acceleration or if I am even using the correct formula. Please help
