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

Two objects are connected by a light string that passes over frictionless pulley. Draw free body diagram of both objects. Assuming the incline is frictionless, m1= 2.00kg m2= 6.00 kg and the angle is 55. A. find the accelerations of the objects, B. the tension in the string. C. the speed of each object 2.00 seconds after they are released from rest.

The picture is a triangle with M2 sitting on the hypotenuse connected to the pulley and M1 hanging from the pulley. The angle that is 55 is not the one the pulley is on. I hope this helps!

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The free body diagrams are confusing me and I have no clue where to go to find the acceleration even if I did have the right diagram drawn.
