Hey guys! Here's another question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A mass, m1=5 kg, is on a frictionless ramp. The mass is connected to a cable that passes over a pulley which is then attached to a second hanging mass, m2 = 10kg. How long will it take the boxes to move 3 m if they are released from rest?

My problem with these questions, is that I don't know how to approach them. I need help determining how I should approach this problem, what I should be thinking about, how do I know which formula to use ect. Basically, I don't know how to start the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I have attached a picture for this as well.

Thanks
