The system shown in Figure 4.54 has an acceleration of magnitude 1.20 m/s2, where m1 = 3.70 kg and m2 = 7.60 kg. Assume that the coefficient of kinetic friction between block and incline is the same for both inclines.
(a) Find the coefficient of kinetic friction.
(b) Find the tension in the string.
The Attempt at a Solution
ive tried to compile all the forces into one equation and it turned out like this:
Fk on m1 + Fk on m2 + Fg m1 - Fg m2 = Fnet
n1*muk + n2*muk + m1g - m2g = m2a
-please i need help as fast as possible
