A cable $\mathrm{PQ}$ of length $25 \mathrm{~m}$ is supported at two ends at the same level as shown in the figure. The horizontal distance between the supports is $20 \mathrm{~m}$. A point load of $150 \mathrm{kN}$ is applied at point $\mathrm{R}$ which divides it into two equal parts.

Neglecting the self-weight of the cable, the tension (in $\mathrm{kN},$ in integer value) in the cable due to the applied load will be
