(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. 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 as in Figure P4.26. The 7.00 kg crate lies on a smooth incline of angle 43.0°.

(a) Find the acceleration of the 7.00 kg crate.

(b) Find the tension in the string.

Drew a diagram identifying all the forces. I know I need to make the equation for m1 and m2, and add them together in order to cancel out all but 1 variable. Unfortunately I've forgotten too many steps to make a decent attempt at that.

Thanks in advance
