Three blocks are connected on the table as shown below. The table is rough and has a coefficient of kinetic friction of 0.500. The objects have masses of 4.00 kg, 1.00 kg and 2.00 kg, as shown, and the pulleys are frictionless.

Determine the acceleration of each object and their directions in terms of up, down, left and, right. Show all work

4.00kg object=

1.00kg object=

2.00kg object=

Determine the tensions in the two cords. Show all work.
Left cord tension=
Right cord tension=

Determine the acceleration of each object and their directions in terms of up, down, left and, right. Show all work

4.00kg object=2.1 (m/s^2)(down)

1.00kg object=2.1 (m/s^2)(left)

2.00kg object=2.1 (m/s^2)(up)

Determine the tensions in the two cords. Show all work.
Left cord tension=30.8(N)
Right cord tension=23.8(N)
