Problem 3 In the situation shown in the figure, a person is pulling with a constant, nonzero force attached to block B via string 2, as shown. on

In the situation shown in the figure, a person is pulling with a constant, nonzero force F on string 1, which is attached to block A. Block A is also attached to block B via string 2, as shown.
For this problem, assume that neither string stretches and that friction is negligible. Both blocks have finite (nonzero) mass.

(Figure 1) Part A
Which one of the following statements correctly descibes the relationship between the accelerations of blocks A and B?
Which one of the following statements correctly descibes the relationship between the accelerations of blocks A and B?
Block A has a larger acceleration than block B.
Block B has a larger acceleration than block A.
Both blocks have the same acceleration.
More information is needed to determine the relationship between the accelerations. Part B
How does the magnitude of the tension in string 1, , compare with the tension in string 2, ? How does the magnitude of the tension in string 1, , compare with the tension in string 2, ? More information is needed to determine the relationship between and .
