Distance between nails



A thin four-foot long chain is suspended by its ends and nailed to a wall.  Both nails are level with one another and parallel to the floor.  Because of gravity, the middle of the chain is hangs down towards the floor.  If the vertical length of the chain is two feet, what is the distance between the nails?
