# Tension of Rope

A tightrope walker with a mass of 60.0 kg stands at the center of a rope which was initially strung horizontally between two poles. His weight causes the rope to sag symmetrically, making an angle of 4.80 with the horizontal. What is the tension in the rope?

359 N

589 N

2470 N

3520 N

A tightrope walker with a mass of 60.0 kg stands at the center of a rope which was initially strung horizontally between two poles 50.0 m apart. His weight causes the rope to sag 1.20 m. What is the tension in the rope?
