    Please see the attached file for full description and diagram.

    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.
