A 2.0 kg mass , placed on a smooth, level table, is attached by a light string passing over a frictionless pulley to a 5.0 kg mass hanging freely over the edge of a table. Calculate...

a) the tension in the string

b) the acceleration of the 2.0 kg mass on the table.The answer given was

T=14N

a=7.0m/s^2

## Homework Equations

ΣF=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

ΣF=ma

Ft + Fg = (5+2)a

Ft + (mg) = (7)9.8

Ft + (49) = (68.6)

Ft = 19.6N
