*m*= 0.9 kg; the mass of the upper block is 4.0 kg. Find the tension in the string that is tied to the wall.

-I have the forces of Block A as Tension, Normal Force, and Gravity (mg). From my calculations I have that Tension equals 0 (which I don't think is correct) and the Normal Force being equal to 39.2.

- For Block B I have the forces as Tension and Gravity, which gives me the Tension being equal to 8.82

- Finally,I separated the tension of the rope on the wall to the x and y components with X: Tcos33 and Y: Tsin33

- We can assume this is all in static equilibrium. Any advice on mistakes or how to proceed with this problem is much appreciated!
