Two blocks are connected by a light string passing over a pulley. The inclined surfaces are frictionless, and the effects of the pulley can be ignored. The value of m1 = m2 = 1.0 kg and θ2 = 43.4 degrees. If the blocks accelerate to the right with acceleration a = 0.280 m/s2, what is the value of θ1?
