I was taking upwards in the y direction positve and downwards in the y dierction negetive my bad

physics
a = m2^-1 (m1 a) -g solve for acceleartion it's the same post below they cancel out

prealgebra
y^2 + 6y -12 y -72 simplify

Algebra
I think you mean the limits

Physics
ok how do I solve for a m1 a - m2 g = m2 a

Physics
I've asked a similar qustion earlier and now I think I have drawn the correct free body diagram and go about solving the problem. The only thing is I do not know how to solve it. a block (mass m1) on a smooth horizontal surface, connected by a thin cord that passes over a ...

Physics
Ok I guess the reason why I do not know how to do this problem is because I can not draw the proper free-body diagram... Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact with each other as shown in Fig. 4-5. A force F is applied to block 1 (mass m1). (a) Draw a...

Physics
is this right? ------Force F onto m1--->|m1| ---contact force onto m2--->|m2|-----contact force onto m3---->|m3|

Physics
Ok I guess I'm drawing the free body diagram wrong how do I draw it because this is not making much sense to me

Physics
I got two questions Three blocks on a fricitonless horizontal surface are in contact with each other a force F is applied to block 1 mass m1 Draw a free body diagram for each block ok done the accelration of the system (in terms of m1, m2, and m3) ok done I got a = (m1 + m2 + ...

Physics
Ok I got a question I asked before except there are other parts that I didn't ask so here we go Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact with each other A force F is applied to block 1 (mass m1). Draw a free-body diagram for each block ok I did this...

Physics
I'm also kind of lost on how to draw the free body diagram of the first block the force F points to the right right? what points to the left <-----| m1 |------> F what points to the left I know the rest for m1 i think If i drew force F corectly on block m1 and how do...

Physics
