Three masses are connected as shown in the attached figure. The masses of mA, mB, and mC are 2.00 kg, 4.00 kg and 6.00 kg respectively. Mass A experiences a frictional force of 10N, and mass B experiences a frictional force of 15.0N. Assuming the string rides without friction over the rod at the table's edge, calculate the acceleration of the system of masses and the tension in each of the two string segments.
