*I'm aware my free body diagram is off and that normal force should be in the left quadrant.

2. Relevant equations

F=m*a

3. The attempt at a solution

Would I be correct in saying..

Fg of A = mg * sin (20)

= 2kg * 9.8 * sin (20)

=17.9N

Fg of B= mg

= (3 kg) (9.8 m/s^2)

=29.4N

Fnet = 29.4N - 17.9N = 11.5 N (tension of massless rope)

F= m*a

a= F/m

a of (A) = 11.5/2 = 5.75 m/s^2

a of (B) = 11.5/3 = 3.83 m/s^2
