Two 0.33 kg blocks are attached to a 1.62m long string such that the lengths of the three string segments are equal. The ends of the string are attached to the ceiling at points separated by 1m.
Each segment is 0.54m long. (If drawn, it will form a trapezoid.)

What is the tension in the horizontal segment. Answer in units of N.
