SEE ATTACHMENT #1 for a diagram showing parameters.
Frictionless block M1 = 3.6 kg, is connected by a cord to block M2 = 7.5 kg. They are placed on a plane which is at angle b= 25 degrees. The coefficient of friction f = .45 between M2 and the plane. Find the tension in the cord as they slide down.
See attachment #2.
On ATTACHMENT #1 draw arrows for all forces which exist on both blocks, labeled in terms of parameters.
In five steps, the problem is explained and solved.
