**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 θ T = so . ) tan 2 ( ) sin 2 ( cos middle θ Mg θ θ Mg T = = (c) Mathematically speaking, θ ≠ 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....
