Frictional force, acceleration of system, tension on string

From the attached diagram, determine

(a) frictional force
(b) acceleration of the system
(c) tension in the string (d) net force acting on the 2 dg block.

The coefficient of friction is 0.4.


Solution Preview

m1 = 3 kg, m2 = 2 kg
because, coeff of friction mu = 0.4
The friction force on 3 kg block(Ff) = mu*m1*g
Ff =04.*3*9.8 = 117.6 N ...

Solution Summary

With good explanations and full calculations, the problems are solved.
