Force Problem

  1. Sep 18, 2007 #1
    There is no answer for this problem in my textbook and since no values are given, I can;t tell how far the answer should go.

    Here it is:

    Thank you.

    How many forces are acting on the system?
    What is the mass of the system?

    From your diagram, what are the forces acting on m1? And what about m2?

    If m1 is accelerating at, say, a m/s^2, then what is the acceleration of m2?
