I am currently studying for my GCSE's but have a keen intrest in physics and maths. Today at school i noticed a question;

A chain of length a is placed on a frictional-less table with length b of the chain dangling off the edge of the table.

Using [tex]\\F = ma[/tex]

derive the formula:

[tex]\\T= \sqrt{\frac{a}{g}} \\In \frac{\sqrt{ a^2- b^2 }}{b}[/tex]
