X(m) Prob. 2 (20pts)Two crates of masses m = 50.0kg and M = 150.0kg connected by a rope are being pulled up an incline by a force F parallel to the incline as shown in the diagram. The rope connecting the crates will break if the tension T in it exceeds 625.0N. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the crates and the incline surface is µ = 0.25. (Note: use g = 10m/s2) F
