## Homework Statement

Two blocks

*m*and

_{1}*m*are connected by a weightless rod are on a inclined plane of ∅=37° and μ =0.25 .What is the common acceleration and Tension of rod if

_{2}*m*is 4 kg and

_{1}*m*is 2 kg such that the 4kg block is the upper block.

_{2}OPTIONS

A =4m/

^{2}T=0

B =2m/

^{2}T=5

*N*

C =10m/

C =

^{2}T=10N

D = 15m/

^{2}T = 9N

## Homework Equations

F=

*ma*

## The Attempt at a Solution

Looking at

*m*

T + m1gsinø - friction

T +m1gsinø -μm1gcosø =m1a...[/B]

_{1}T + m1gsinø - friction

_{1}=maT +m1gsinø -μm1gcosø =m1a...

Looking at m

m2gsinø - T - μm2gcosø =m2a...[II]Adding I and II

i got a =5m/sLooking at m

_{2}m2gsinø - T - μm2gcosø =m2a...[II]Adding I and II

i got a =5m/s

^{2}which is WRONG. :(
