1.In the diagram above, the pulley is frictionless and the ropes are massless. Given that m1 = 14.5 kg and m2 = 23.0 kg, calculate the acceleration of m2 downwards. What is the magnitude of the tension in the string? http://loncapa2.fsu.edu/enc/59/442f45016df264899bda870a0d495f3be185f0a9c3a069c0974d3402c80bd41f1205766cdaec4ada41f4efc2666f14750f4fc16641ffd2b0af613da7e393c18c701021fb78fb5ffbd3d77c79fd9b210f.gif I am not sure what the relevant equations would be. N=mg? 3. The attempt at a solution N1=(14.5)*(9.81) N2=(23-14.5)*(a) Set the equations equal and then solve for "a"? I do know that this is an Atwood machine. I have searched this forum for examples and I am still unsure of how to solve this problem. TIA.
