## Homework Statement

Two blocks, each with weight w, are held in place on a frictionless incline as shown in Figure. In terms of w and the angle a of the incline, calculate the tension in the rope connecting the blocks

## Homework Equations

T = mg

## The Attempt at a Solution

I cannot for figure out why the answer is Wsin(a)! I thought that since Tsin(a) = mg, T = w/sin(a)
