A block of mass 2.00 kg and a block of mass 6.00 kg are connected by a massless string over a pulley in the shape of a solid disk having a radius of .25 m and mass 10 kg. These blocks are allowed to move on a fixed block-wedge of angle 30 degrees. Friction = .360 for both blocks. Ok I don't have a scanner but do you get the picture? The 2 kg block is sitting on a flat surface and the other is sitting on a 30 degree surface attached by a string that goes over a pulley at the change in slope point. I basicly know the set up but having problems with making a equation. The first part is to find the acceleration of the blocks. This would be m_2*g*cos(30)-friction of M_1- friction of M_2. Is this right? The second part is the tension of the strings on both sides of the pulley. All I can think of is T=m(g-a) Please help need to understand finals next week.
