1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Two people are trying to climb an iced-over mountain. They are connected by a rope which passes smoothly over a rock where the terrain bends (acting as a pulley). One climber (110kg) is on top on a horizontal surface while the other (125kg) is on a 22.56 degree incline. Assume the ice is frictionless and the climbers have no tools to aid their climb. What is the tension in the rope, and what would be their acceleration? 2. Relevant equations F = m*a and the variation T - mg = ma. 3. The attempt at a solution [tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fx = -T + mgsin(22.56) [tex]\Sigma[/tex]Fy = N - mgcos(22.56) Now I am unsure what to do next, as all previous problems assumed the object was at rest. Should I set both of these equal to ma then solve for the acceleration vector? The issue I run into with doing so is that there are two different masses to be concerned with in this problem. -Thanks for any assistance in advance.
