Two boxes with different masses M1 = 1.8 kg and M2 = 2.6 kg are tied together on a frictionless ramp surface which makes an angle θ = 21° with the horizontal (see the figure below).

What is the tension in the rope connecting the two boxes? N


What is the tension in the rope connecting the first box to the ramp? N

There was a ramp the two box where sliding toward to left seems like a 45 degree angle n first is m1 thn m2 does this helppp

  • PHYSICSSSSS helpppp please -

    If they are sliding at the same rate, tension is zero. If they are not sliding, then there is tension.
