Homework Statement
I have a double incline mass problem where Φ=43° and θ=20°, mass_A=1.00kg and they are connected by a massless string where the net force of each block is equal to 0.
Homework Equations
I believe I am to use newton's 2nd law to find the force of the tension which I have next to my FBD. Since they were both 0 I set them equal to each other as you can see the arrows are directing in the photo, but I'm kind of lead nowhere. :/ I'll post the photo in 3.
My equations are:
$$\vec {T}_1 = m_A g + \hline \vec {T}_1 \cos {\phi}$$
and
$$\vec{T}_2=m_Ag+\hline \vec{T}_2\cos{\theta}$$
which I set equal to each other. I think this is how I would describe ##\vec{T}_1## and ##\vec{T}_2## with vector addition.
