Homework Help: Tension Force with Pulleys

  1. Sep 13, 2011 #1
    I need some help with this problem. I can find the acceleration, just not the tension force. The mew kinetic is .6. The mass on the table is 10 kg and the mass hanging on the pulley is 20 kg.
    Thanks a ton.

    Have you drawn a free body diagram?

    HINT: What is the force required to make the system accelerate?
