Homework Statement
Downward acceleration of life is 5m/s^{2}
Homework Equations
f=ma
g=10m/s
The Attempt at a Solution
Effective force at play on 10 kg block: mg ma
= 100N50N
= 50 Newtons
Effective force at play on 5 kg block: mgma
= (5025)N
= 25 Newtons
The 10 kg block outmatched its nemesis (5kg block) by +25 Newtons. It's the heavier one.
25N=10kg*a
2.5m/s^{2}
But this isn't the correct answer. The correct is 5 m/s^{2}.
I'm at sea. Please help
