**Curve for chain in NON-homogeneous gravitational field?**

What would be the equation and curve for a perfect chain suspended in an non-homogeneous gravitational field, analogous to the catenary or

hyperbolic

cosine, which would be the locus taken in a homogeneous field?

Eg: As an example, consider the curve taken by such a chain suspended

from the tops of a pair of ~five-thousand-mile-high towers, which have

bases

separated by, say, a few thousand miles distance, on a static Earth.

Thanks,

Gene
