In the figure we see two blocks connected by a string and tied to a wall, with theta = 33°. The mass of the lower block is m = 1.0 kg; the mass of the upper block is 2.0 kg. The tension of the string connecting the blocks is 5.337.

Find the tension in the string that is tied to the wall.

Thank you!

Wouldn't this depend on how they are connected?

They are connected by a string -- unfortunately I am unable to link the diagram. I believe that for the purpose of the problem they are ideal strings.

And it's around 16.4 -- I just can't get it to the exact value that the Webassign will accept. Thank you again!
