## Homework Statement

Assuming no friction is on the plane or the pulleys and the pulley and rope have negligible mass... Determine the acceleration of each block and the tension in each cord. Block A weighs 100kg, Block B weighs 300kg.

## Homework Equations

ΣF = ma

m

_{a}= 100kg

m

_{b}= 300kg

## The Attempt at a Solution

ΣFx = ma

_{x}= T

_{1}= 100a

_{x}

ΣFy = ma

_{y}= W - T

_{2}= 2943kg - T

_{2 =}300a

_{y}

T

_{1}=2T

_{2}

I know that I have the relationships right, but I don't know exactly how to extract them...
