A block of mass m1 ϭ 2.00 kg and a block of mass(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

m 2 ϭ 6.00 kg are connected by a massless string over a pul-

ley in the shape of a solid disk having radius R ϭ 0.250 m

and mass M ϭ 10.0 kg. These blocks are allowed to move

on a fixed block-wedge of angle ϭ 30.0° as in Figure

P10.37. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.360 for both

blocks. Draw free-body diagrams of both blocks and of the

pulley. Determine (a) the acceleration of the two blocks

and (b) the tensions in the string on both sides of the

pulley.
