Two objects with masses of m1 = 3.90 kg and m2 = 5.70 kg are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley, as in the figure below.
A string passes over a pulley which is suspended from a horizontal surface. A circular object of mass m1 and a rectangular object of m2 are, respectively, attached to the left and right ends of the string.
(a) Determine the tension in the string. (Enter the magnitude
only. Due to the nature of this problem, do not use rounded
intermediate values in your calculations—including answers
submitted in WebAssign.)
(b) Determine the acceleration of each object. (Enter the magnitude only.)
(c) Determine the distance each object will move in the first second of motion if both objects start from rest.
