Unformatted text preview: horizontal distance of 30 m from one end. The dip (distance below the horizontal) at that point being 1.9 m. Find (approximately) the horizontal component of the cable tension and the dip at midspan. b) If the cable has an effective cross-sectional area of 1000 mm 2 and an effective Young’s modulus of 2 GPa, estimate the extension of the cable due to the loading in part (a). Would this extension affect the assumptions you made to evaluate the tension in the cable in part (a)?....
