## Homework Statement

M1 and M2 are two masses connected as shown (M2 hangs over the table). The pulley is light (massless) and frictionless. Find the mass M1, given that M2 (3.0 kg) accelerates downwards at 2.31 m/s^2, q is 20°, and μk is 0.41.

## Homework Equations

F=ma

μn=friction

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well I thought I could find tension using F=3*2.31 but that didn't get me anywhere. I drew a force diagram for m1, but it looks like there's too much missing to be able to continue. Is the tension part at least right?
