Chain Such As The One In Example 9

A chain such as the one in Example 9.2 (with the same parameters) of length b and mass pb is suspended from one end at a point that is a height b above a table so that the free end barely touches the tabletop. At time t = 0, the fixed end of the chain is released. Find the force that the tabletop exerts on the chain after the original fixed end has fallen a distance x.
