Unformatted text preview: moving? m 1 m 2 Solution: Mass 1: T  f = 0 since a = 0 Also, f = k m 1 g Combining these gives: T = k m 1 g Mass 2: m 2 g  T = since a = 0 Substituting T = k m 1 g into the equation for mass 2 gives m 2 g  k m 1 g = Solving for k : k = 1 2 m m = 0.33 Note on the hazards of cut and paste: The problem explicitly (and incorrectly) stated that the table was frictionless, so I also accepted the answer k = 0....
