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

There is a 1.0 kg block on the left connected by a cord to a 2.5kg block on the right.

If this is being pulled from the right by a 50n force. What is the tension on the cord connecting the two masses.

There is also a small 2.0kg block in front of the 1.0 kg block that is not attached to the cord.

But if the blocks are pulled the 2.0 kg block will have to go with it.

2. Relevant equations

I found the acceleration of this system to be 9.1 m/s2.

I just need to find the tension equation to use for this problem.

Any ideas? Thanks
