**Unformatted text preview: **the horizontal force that each hook exerts, which is the same as the horizontal component of the force due to the tension at the end; , cos middle end T T = so . ) tan 2 ( ) sin 2 ( cos middle Mg Mg T = = (c) Mathematically speaking, because this would cause a division by zero in the equation for end T or middle T . Physically speaking, we would need an infinite tension to keep a non-massless rope perfectly straight....
