## Homework Statement

Two blocks of equal mass m are tied to each other through a light string. One of the blocks is pulled along the line joining them with a constant force F. Find the tension in the string joining the blocks.

## Homework Equations

I tried doing this by this method.

(I don't know how to draw free body diagram here. It is just two bodies connected by string)

I got

F+T=ma

F-T=2ma

Hence, F=3ma/2

I got T=F/3

But the answer given at the back is F/2

Can someone help me with this?

Where am I going wrong?
