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

Force of tension externally is 150N [up]

Acceleration is 2.99 m/s^2 [down]

Mass A is the highest and is 4kg

Mass B is attached to Mass A by a light (negligible) string, Mass B is 6 kg

Mass C is attached to Mass B by a light (negligible) string, Mass C is 12 kg

What is the force of tension on the string between Mass A and B.

2. Relevant equations

There isn't really a formula for tension I don't think... Which is why I'm confused. I have gotten the wrong answer 3 times already. Im not sure how the relationship between the three bodies works in this system
