There's a plane pulling two gliders. The first glider is 310 kg while the second glider is 260 kg. The place itself it 2200 kg and is pulling at 1.9 m/s squared.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to figure out the tension of the first rope and the second rope. I found the net force on the first plane by taking the total Newton value for both the first glider and the plane and subtracting the mass of the second glider times 1.9

I Thought this would give the tension force of the rope.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

What's a good FBD for this?

Here's what I thought it was

Any help? :)
