Two packing crates of masses m1 = 10.0 kg and m2 = 7.00 kg are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley. The 7.00 kg crate lies on a smooth incline of angle 43.0°. Find the acceleration of the 7.00 kg crate up the incline. Find the tension in the string.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I found the acceleration (correctly) to be 3.0126 but I can't seem to get the tension part of the question. I tried the formula T=(m2)(g)(sinTHETA)+(m2)(a) using 7(3.0126)sin43+7(3.0126) and 10(3.0126)sin43+10(3.0126) but neither gave the correct answer.
