    Hello Stradivarius. Welcome to PF !

    The problem given in that link.
    Consider the situation shown in the figure but with the 4.0- kg mass replaced by a 6.5- kg mass. The frictional coefficient is 0.30.

    1) Find the acceleration of the system.  2) What is the tension T1?  3) What is the tension T2?

    Do you have any ideas at all regarding how to solve part 1) ?
