Two identical blocks tied together with a string which passes over a pulley at the crest of the inclined planes, one of which makes an angle q1 = 20° to the horizontal, the other makes the complementary angle q2 = 70°. If there is no friction anywhere, with what acceleration do the blocks move?
heres a simple pic to describe the question better:
