(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [solved] Forces and friction

Hi guys :]

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A box (A) slides up a ramp due to the mass of the attached box (B).

Given the acceleration and ramp length, determine the force of tension and force of kinetic friction.

2. Relevant equations

Fnet=ma

Fg=mg

3. The attempt at a solution

I only got as far as finding the Fnet by multiplying the combined masses and given acceleration. Where do I go from here?

I don't need numerical values, just.. can someone enlighten me on how I should approach this question, so I can find the kinetic friction and tension forces?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks !
