1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In Figure below, m1 = 11.9 kg and m2 = 4.23 kg. The coefficient of static friction between m1 and the horizontal surface is 0.526 while the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.288. If the system is released from rest, what will its acceleration be? If the system is set in motion with m2 moving downward, what will be the acceleration of the system? 2. Relevant equations F=MA i assume 3. The attempt at a solution Don't even know where to start with this problem.
