Two blocks are connected by a cord passing over a small frictionless pulley. The angle is 30 degrees, and the mass of the small block is m=15kg. If the coefficient of friction between the small block and the inclined plane is .25 and the large block is accelerating down at 2m/s^2, what is the mass, M, of the large block?
