**Two "carts" and two masses on one ramp.**

## Homework Statement

[URL]http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~tkissel/hell.jpg[/URL]

Assume that both of the masses on the ramp are carts with equal masses. Assume no friction in this problem. There is no acceleration. Calculate the unknown mass (on the right side of the problem). The angles are 19 degrees and 32 degrees.

## Homework Equations

Fp=mgsinΘ

F=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

Fw1 + Fp1 = Ft2 + Fp2

(2.5)(9.8) + (9.8)(m)(sin19) = (9.8)(m)(sin32) + (9.8)(m2)

Stuck after this :(
