1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 24 kg block with a pulley attached slides along a firctionless surface. It is connected by a massless string to a 5.3 kg block via the arrangement shown. a) Find the acceleration of the 24 kg block. b) Find the tension in the connecting string. 2. Relevant equations F = ma 3. The attempt at a solution For the 24 kg, I thought that 24a = 2T. Then 5.3g - T = 5.3a. Then set the two equal to each other, so I got a = 3.005 m/s. However, that answer is incorrect. Part b, I would just plug in the part a answer, but my part a answer is incorrect. Please help with setup, etc. Thank you!
