The system shown in the figure below has an acceleration of magnitude 1.15 m/s^{2}, where *m*_{1} = 4.30 kg and *m*_{2} = 9.40 kg. Assume that the coefficient of kinetic friction between block and incline is the same for both inclines.

a) Find the coefficient of kinetic friction.

b) Find the tension in the string.

Step 1

Given:

Mass of block, m_{1 }= 4.30 kg

Mass of block, m_{2} = 9.40 kg

Acceleration of the system, a = 1.15 m/s^{2}

Step 2

Since there is no motion in vertical direction

Step 3

Equation of motion for the ...
