(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A block of mass1 5.0 kg is on a table that bonds a coefficient of friction of 3.00. Mass1 is attached to Mass2 by a string, and Mass2 is hanging over the table. The system is released from rest for it to accelerate.

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

F fric = μFnormal

3. The attempt at a solution

[itex]\sum Fx of Mass1[/itex] = F tension - F friction

[itex]\sum Fy of Mass1[/itex] = 0

[itex]\sum Fx of Mass2[/itex] = 0

[itex]\sum Fy of Mass2[/itex] = FW - F tension

Is tension created by the mass1 or mass2?

im guessing both? but that doesn't make any sense...
