Hey, I need help working these problems. Thanks you.

1) A 50-m tape is used to measure between two points. The average weight of the tape per meter is 0.320 N. If the measured distance is 48.888 m, with the tape supported at the ends only and with a tension of 100 N, find the corrected distance.

2) A100-ft steel tape weighing 1.8 lb and supported only at the ends with a tension of 24 lb is used to measure a distance of 471.16 ft. What is the distance corrected for sag?

3) A distance of 72.55 ft is recorded using a steel tape supported only at the ends with a tension of 15 lb and weighing 0.016 lb per foot. Find the distance corrected for sag.
