    In a simulation, m1 is 1.0 kg and m2 is 1.1 kg. Mass m2 rests on the floor that exerts a normal force, FN, on m2. There is no motion (i.e.. the system is in equilibrium). What is the normal force, FN, and what is the tension, T, in the rope? T (at t = 2.54 s) = ______. At equilibrium: FN + T - m2 ? g = 0. Then FN = _______.
