Two objects are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley, as in Figure P5.26. The incline is frictionless, m1 = 2.00 kg, m2 = 6.00 kg, and = 50.0°.
(?) Find the speed of each object 2.00 s after being released from rest.
I already found the acceleration to be 3.18 m/s2 using the equation:
a=(m2)(g)(sin50.0)-(m1)(g) / m1 + m2
I already found the tension in the string to be 25.9 using the equation:
T=(m1)(m2)(g)(sin50.0+1) / (m1+m2)
The Attempt at a Solution
I cannot figure out how to find the speed. I'm not even sure what equation to use for this type of problem. I was thinking S=mass/acceleration. But that equation doesn't take into account the friction.
