## Homework Statement

Two blocks weighing 250 N and 350 N are connected by a string that passes over a massless pulley. What is the tension in the string?

## Homework Equations

T= (2*m

_{1}*m

_{2})/(m

_{1}+m

_{2})*9.8m/s

^{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

m

_{1}= 250/9.8 = 25.5

m

_{2}= 350/9.8 = 35.7

T = (2*25.5*35.7)/(25.5+35.7)*9.8 = 291 N

Doesn't seem right. Can someone tell me what I did wrong?
