Question: two blocks of mass m1 and m2 are connected by...

Question details

Two blocks of mass m1 and m2 are connected by a massless string that passes over a frictionless pulley as shown below. The inclines are rough (include friction) and are both elevated by an angle θ.

a) Draw free body diagrams for both of the masses in this system.

b) Find the magnitude of the acceleration of each block (in term of m1, m2, μ and θ.

c) Find the tension in the string.

d) Find the two conditions where the blocks remain stationary (hint: on condition relates to the mass and the other to the friction)
