In a setup if the mass (M) of the glider is 300 grams and the small mass (m) is 27 grams (the two masses are connected by the string), calculate what the acceleration of the system will be when the small mass is free to fall with no friction in the system? include units.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com November 24, 2021, 5:38 pm ad1c9bdddf
Please see the attached file.
glider mass, M = 300 gm = 0.30 kg
small mass, m = 27 gm = 0.027 kg
Let us assume tension in the string = T, and the acceleration be a (as shown in FBD)
