Two blocks rest on slopes of unequal angles, connected by a rope passing over a pulley. If the blocks equal masses, will they remain at rest? Why? Neglect friction.

No, they will not remain at rest in the absence pof friction. The mass on the steeper slope will slide downhill. It exerts a greater force on the rope than the other mass.
