How can I find the tension force of a rope between 2 blocks with the same mass that are sliding down in a ramp or triangle that has an inclination of 30 degrees? Given coefficient of friction in the lowest block (A) is 0.25 and the block that is higher (B) has a coefficient of friction of 0.35. Note: there are only 2 blocks and a rope between them. No mass or force was given. If this is possible to calculate please elaborate because I got this in a test and no example in the book or in the internet exists like this. If its not possible please let me know.
