I would like to represent in Mathematica a Catenary's curve, and then let the user Manipulate each of the Parameters, like the position of the hanging-points, the cable's weight, the cable's length, the force of gravity, etc..
But the equation of the catenary's curve, is: y(x) = a*cosh(x/a)so just the a can be "manipulated". How can I allow the user to manipulate all these parameters?

Thankyou very much for your support!
