PLease HeLP! You work for a moving company and are given the job of pulling two large boxes of mass m1 = 112 kg and m2 = 287 kg using ropes as shown in the figure below. You pull very hard, and the boxes are accelerating with a = 0.21 m/s2. What is the tension in each rope? Assume there is no friction between the boxes and the floor.
