## Homework Statement

A block is hanging from a rope which has another rope connected to another block underneath.

The top block has a mass of 60 Kg and the bottom block has a mass of 30 Kg. Both blocks are accelerated 1.2 m/s^2 upward. What is the tension force between the two blocks? (Assume rope is mass-less)

## Homework Equations

F = ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

I figured I could get the tension force of the top rope by combining both masses together.

F = ma = (90 Kg)(1.2 m/s^2) = 108 N

F = T - mg; => T = F + mg = 108N - (90 Kg)(9.80 m/s)

T = 990 N

I don't even know where to begin to find the tension force between the two blocks.
