(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In the diagram, the pulley is frictionless and the

string is massless. Given: m2 = 90 kg, m1 = 2m2, angle=

26o, and μk = 0.11. Determine the tension in the string.

The m2 is on a sloped hill, m1 is dangling down off of the pully

2. Relevant equations

Fg=mg

F=ma

Fk=uk(Fn)

3. The attempt at a solution

I found the net force for m2 to be 386.643-the friction force which is 87.201=299.442N. then I subtracted from the Fg of m1=1764N. So 1764-299.442=1464.56N so the tension=1464.56N did I do this right?
