Hi! First Time Poster. Thank you for helping me with my problem! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 28.3-kg block (m1) is on a horizontal surface, connected to a 5.5-kg block (m2) by a massless string as shown in the Figure. The pulley is massless and frictionless. A force of 208.9 N acts on m1 at an angle of 29.7o. The coefficient of kinetic friction between m1 and the surface is 0.201. Determine the upward acceleration of m2. \ \ \ M1-------O | | M2 I'm not sure how to post pictures within my message just yet. 2. Relevant equations X and Y components of the force on F1 Sum F = M * A Kf = uK * Fn g = 9.8m/s 3. The attempt at a solution **Y+ is upwards and X+ is to the right** I found the X and Y components of the Force on M1 I added M1 and M2... not sure if I need this but just in case. And I drew Free Body Diagrams for both M1 and M2 - M1 has Normal Force acting Y+, which equals its Weight (m*g)... M1 also has Friction and Tension acting X+... the x component of the force acting X- - M2 only has Tension acting Y+, and Weight (mg)... I suspect the tension to be equal to the tension... but I'm not sure. Thanks! I hope I gave you enough information!
