Block1 has a mass of 8.63 kg and block2 has a mass of 1.24 kg. b1 is on an inclined plane with no friction. The plane is 30 degrees from the horizontal. b1 is connected to b2 with a string-pully system (no mass or friction). b2 is on a horizontal plane witha kinetic friction of .145 Block m1 is sliding down, pulling block m2. I have to find the tension in the string and the acceleration of the blocks. so i did this: (mass(b1) * 9.81 * sin 30) + (mass(b2) * 9.81 * .145) = T to find the tension which equals 44.09 which is not the answer. I can find the acceleration once i get the tension i believe by f=ma.
