8.46.Model:Masses 1mand 2mare considered particles. The string is assumed to be massless. Visualize:Solve:The tension in the string causes the centripetal acceleration of the circular motion. If the hole is smooth, it acts like a pulley. Thus tension forces 1TGand 2TGact as if they were an action/reaction pair. Mass 1mis in circular motion of radius
