(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Well for a lab we did, there's a 3kg mass hanging over a pulley, attached to a 5.4kg brick by a rope, causing the brick to accelerate over a horizontal surface. I have no idea how I'm supposed to calculate the tension.

Oh, and the force of friction is 12.01 N.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma?

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't even know where to begin.

Thank you!
