OR! No symbolic solution with catenary 🤔

May be there is one symbolic solution for this problem - a parabola, not a catenary!

I published an article about a chain on a cylinder in the article collection of the Institute of Mechanics of Moscow University. This institute employs people who calculated the flights of the first spacecraft - Sputnik, Jury Gagarin etc!
