1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations We have yet to go over this material, which kinda pisses me off, but I'm guessing that: f=ma, w=ma, g = 9.8m/s/s are important 3. The attempt at a solution If somebody could point me in the right direction that would be very helpful. I attempted at drawing a diagram of the forces on each object, but I'm not sure where to even start.
