1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the acceleration of the system and the tension in the connecting cord. Mass 1 = 2.8kg T1 = ? Mass 2 = 1.2kg T2 = ? mu = .2 *My picture is kinda bad but you can see how its set up* 2. Relevant equations ∑F = m*a 3. The attempt at a solution I drew a FBD for Block A --> ∑Fx = m*a T1 - ƒ = m*a T1 = m*g*mu + m*a For Block B --> Down = positive T2 = mg - ma My question is... are the two tensions equal? Would I just set these two equations equal to each other & solve for a and than solve for T?
