Two masses are connected by a string over an ideal pulley as shown. The coefficient of kinetic friction between m1 and the table surface is πœ‡. Find an expression for their common speed after the blocks have moved a distance L. You can assume that you know: m1, m2, L, and πœ‡. (i.e. It’s ok for those variables and any known constants to appear in your answer.)
