    Two objects are connected by a light string that passes over a friction-less pulley. The incline is friction-less, m1 = 2.00 kg, m2 = 6.00 kg, and theta = 55.0 degrees. Answer the following and show all work.

    Find:
    a) the acceleration of the objects
    b) the tension in the string
    c) the speed of each object 2.00s after being released from rest.

    Please see the attached file for detailed solution.

    M2 is heavier than m1, so the system will slide down the incline.
    First draw the FBD for both masses. On m1, there are two forces: m1g and the tension T.
    For m2, there are three forces: m2g, tension T and normal force N.
