Two blocks (one 10kg; other 5 kg) are connected by a string that runs over the surface of a frictionless table.
1. Are the masses moving or stationary?
2. Whats the accelaration of the 10 kg mass
3. whats the acceleration of the 5 kg mass?
if the string is cut when 5 kg mass hits the bottom of the table surface, how long does it take to fall to the ground?
which one of newton's laws is this?
