A mass m2 = 1.1 kg, on a 35.0° incline, is connected to a mass m1 = 6.0 kg, on a horizontal surface. The surfaces and the pulley are frictionless. If F = 17.5 N, what is the magnitude of the tension in the connecting cord?
The Attempt at a Solution
Realy stumped on this one, i drew free body diagrams for each of the objects and attempted to eliminate the forces, i believe that F-(tension+m*g*cos(35)) = net force. Then i add the masses together and divide by M to get acceleration, and then plug acceleration back into f=ma but instead of the total mass i use 1.1 for m2.
