 # Three objects are connected on a table as shown in Figure P4.73. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block of mass m 2 and the table is 0.350. The objects have masses of m 1 = 4.00 kg, m 2 = 1.00 kg, and m 3 = 2.00 kg as shown, and the pulleys are frictionless. (a) Draw a diagram of the forces on each object. (b) Determine the acceleration of each object, including its direction. (c) Determine the tensions in the two cords. (d) If the tabletop were smooth, would the tensions increase, decrease, or remain the same? Explain. Figure P4.73 ### College Physics
