Suppose the coefficient of kinetic friction between m_{1}and the plane in the figure is μ_{k}=0.20, and that m_{1}=m_{2}=2.2kg.

a) As moves down, determine the magnitude of the acceleration of m_{1}and m_{2}given θ=28^{o}.

b) What smallest value of μ_{k}will keep this system from accelerating?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

3. The attempt at a solution

I am not sure even where to begin.
