Physics 1D03 - Lecture 9 2 Problems with several accelerated objects: Free-body diagram for each object. Relate forces by finding action-reaction pairs, etc. Look for constraints on the motion to relate accelerations. “F=ma” for each diagram, break into components. Count unknowns: do you have enough equations? Use algebra to solve.
Physics 1D03 - Lecture 9 3 Two blocks connected by a rope are being pulled by a horizontal force F A . Given that F=60 N, m 1 =12kg and m 2 =18kg, and that μ k =0.1, find the tension in the rope between them and the acceleration of the system. m 1 m 2 F A T
