Homework Help: Massless strings force problem

  1. Sep 19, 2007 #1
    help me!!!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Three blocks on a frictionless surface are connected by massless strings, with M1 = 1.80 kg, M2 = 2.80 kg, and M3 = 3.70 kg. Due to the force F acting on M3, as shown, the system accelerates to the right. Given that T1 is 2.70 N, calculate T2

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I dont exactly know what to do...
