Two boxes of fruit on a frictionless horizontal surface are connected by a light string as in the figures below, where m1 = 15 kg and m2 = 17 kg. A force of 58 N is applied to the 17 kg box.
(a1) Determine the acceleration of the boxes (b) the tension of the string (c)

• Physics URGENT!!! -

58=(m1+m2)a solve for a

Tension between=m2*a

• Physics URGENT!!! -

I still don't understand how to find the tension of the string!
