The figure shows two 1.0 kg blocks connected by a rope. A second rope hangs beneath the lower block. Both ropes have a mass of 250 g. The entire assembly is accelerated upward at by force. What is F? What is the tension at the top end of rope 1? What is the tension at the bottom end of rope 1? What is the tension at the top end of rope 2?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The force on block B:

T-(m of B)g=(m of B)a

The force on block A:

F-[(m of a + m of b)g] = (m of b)a

What do I do now?

Thank you.
