forces act on blocks A and B, which are connected by a string. Force FA = (15 N) i acts on block A, with mass 5.0 kg. Force FB = (24 N) i acts on block B, with mass 6.0 kg. What is the tension in the string?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Fa Fb

-> ->

[A]----->

F=ma

(15N+24N)=(5.0kg+6.0kg)(a)

39=11a

3.54=a

F=ma

F=5(3.54)

F=17.7 X wrong

what am i doing wrong?
