1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Question 1. A triangular prism of mass M is placed one side on a frictionless horizontal plane as shown in Fig. 1. The other two sides are inclined with respect to the plane at angles a1 and a2 respectively. Two blocks of masses m1 and m2, connected by an inextensible thread, can slide without friction on the surface of the prism. The mass of the pulley, which supports the thread, is negligible. Express the acceleration a of the blocks relative to the prism in terms of the acceleration a0 of the prism. Find the acceleration a0 of the prism in terms of quantities given and the acceleration g due to gravity. At what ratio m1/m2 the prism will be in equilibrium? 2. Relevant equations ma=F 3. The attempt at a solution see the picture below i got totally wrong as it is too hard can everyone give me hint to do this question How did i do this question in a more clear and systematic way?
