Unformatted text preview: k *m 1 g For block 2: m 2 a = m 2 g - T We can add the equations together to determine the acceleration: (m 1 +m 2 )a = m 2 g - μ k *m 1 g a = [m 2 g - μ k *m 1 g] / (m 1 +m 2 ) We can then substitute our value for a into either the equation for block 1 or 2 to get the tension: T = m 2 g - m 2 a = m 2 g - m 2 *[m 2 g - μ k *m 1 g] / (m 1 +m 2 )...
