There is a question that that says: a 50 kg weight is suspended from the bottom part from a rope.

If the rope has a weight of 100N. Then what is the tension at each end of the rope( the top part connected to the ceiling and the bottom part to the weight)?

my answer is like that
At the top: the tension is equal to the weight of the rope and the weight so it would be :
100N +500N= 600 N ( g=10)
And at the bottom it’s:
Just the weight, so 500 N. Am i right?
