Consider a modified Atwood machine, with a mass sitting on an inclined plane connected by a string which stretches over a pulley connected to a hanging mass. Friction is ignored.
Draw a free body diagram for both blocks. Apply Newton's second law to both blocks. If the angle is 30 degrees, and the mass of the block on the inclined plane is 15kg and the mass of the hanging block is 10 kg, find the tension in the rope
