Unformatted text preview: passing over a pulley, as shown in the figure below. Neglect the masses of the string and pulley and neglect all sources of friction. In this problem, we will use the following variables: Masses: m1, m2 String Tension: T Inclination angle of track 1: θ Inclination angle of track 2: φ Acceleration of mass m2: a (positive to the right and down track 2) Acceleration constant of gravity: g φ θ m2 m1 (a) Write Newton’s 2 nd Law equation for m1 in terms of m1, θ , a, g, and T: ______________________________________________________ (b) Write Newton’s 2 nd Law equation for m2 in terms of m2, φ , a, g, and T: ______________________________________________________ (c) Find the acceleration (a) in terms of m1, θ , m2, φ , and g: a = __________________________________________________...
