1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object with mass m1 = 6.00 kg, rests on a frictionless horizontal table and is connected to a cable that passes over a pulley and is then fastened to a hanging object with mass m2 = 8.0 kg. Find the acceleration of each object and the tension in the cable. 2. Relevant equations F=ma A=T/6 "Need a Tension equation" 3. The attempt at a solution I tried calculating the tension, T, but my book makes no specific mention of how one is to calculate it in this situation. I drew a free body diagram for the hanging object, and found that N=78.4. However I cant find the sum of forces in the y-directions since I am unable to find T. Also I know that A(x) is equal to T, b/c there are no reactionary forces. If I could find T, I believe I could solve it. Thanks in advance for your help!
