1. For the system shown below use Newton’s Laws to clearly derive an expression for the

acceleration of each mass and the tensions in the cord. The coefficient of friction

between m1 and the incline is 0.100. The mass m1 is 3.00 kg, m2 = 8.00 kg, and θ = 35.0°.

The pulley is frictionless solid disk of mass 0.250 kg.

2. For the system shown below use only Conservation of Energy to clearly derive an

expression for the speed and acceleration of each mass after m2 falls a distance of

2.50 m. The coefficient of friction between m1 and the incline is 0.100. The mass m1 is

3.00 kg, m2 = 8.00 kg, and θ = 35.0°. The pulley is frictionless solid disk of mass

0.250 k

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

ƩF(x) = m a1

T1 - F - mgSinθ = m1 * a

T2 + m2g = m1a

ƩTorque = IAlpha

-RT1 + RT2 = IAlpha

R(T2-T1) = I (alpha/R)

This is not my homework. This was given to use for practicing for our finals.

Any help would be really helpful

Thank You\
