Homework Help: Newton Laws

  1. Dec 4, 2011 #1
    Two crates (m1 = 10.9 kg and m2 = 16.0 kg) are connected with a rope as shown. An applied force of 131 N with an elevation angle of 37.0° applied to m1 accelerates the masses to the right. The mass m1 does not come off the ground, which has a coefficient of friction of 0.328.
