Homework Statement
There is a box on a platform with mass 3.5kg and it has two ropes connected to it. On the end of each of these ropes are 2 other boxes hanging off the table (so only F_y component). One box is 2.5kg and the other is 1.5kg. I need to find the acceleration of all the boxes.
the answer is 1.3m/s^2 for all of them
Homework Equations
F_net=ma
F_g=mg
The Attempt at a Solution
a_box1=F_net/m=((m_1)(g)a_box2)/m
I don't know how to proceed from here because I end up going in a loop
