???????

A parabolic cable is supported at points A and B \( 180 \mathrm{~m} \) horizontally apart with A higher than B. The cable sags so that the tension at the lowest point is \( 18,500 \mathrm{kN} \) and the lowest point of the cable is \( 36 \mathrm{~m} \) below A. The uniform load is \( 60 \mathrm{kN} / \mathrm{m} \) distributed horizontally. (Save your computation because this may be useful in the succeeding questions you encounter in this QUIZ ). Find the tension at the support B. Select one: a. \( 24,570 \mathrm{kN} \) b. \( 20,547 \mathrm{kN} \) c. \( 19,835 \mathrm{kN} \) d. \( 18,593 \mathrm{kN} \)
