I'm attaching a picture for the problem.

2. Relevant equations

F - N - K(that's my problem) = Ma

K = m2a2

N = m1a (the acceleration is the same, since the rolling body pushes the m1 body forward)

m1g - K = m1a1 (this is the acceleration in the y direction)

a2 = a + a1 (this is obvious)

3. The attempt at a solution

Well I know how to solve it now(since I know the force diagram). I just don't know

how that K tension force started to act on the rolling body.

BTW! If you know similiar force problems I would really, really love you for it.

Imho this is pretty complex, I was wondering about non-calculus based, very complex

force problems, examples so I can prepare.

Thanks!
