Two packing crates of masses m1 = 10.0 kg and m2 = 5.00 kg are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley . The 5.00 kg crate lies on a smooth incline of angle 40.0°. Find the acceleration of the 5.00 kg crate and the tension in the string.

2. Relevant equations

i know there is only 1 tension becuase they area attached by a frictionless string, i just dont know where to go from there
