  1. PHY130-General Physics. The horizontal surface on which the objects slide is frictionless. If F = 12 N, find the tension in string 1 and string 2? The tension between mas M and mass 2M is T2 (labeled just 2 in the diagram) and the tension between 2M and 3M is T1 (labeled just 1 in the diagram). You don’t really need a value for M, or if it makes it easier, you can simply use any value you want, say M = 2 kg. The first mass would then be 2 kg, the second one, 4 kg and the third one would be 6 kg.

Question 2

If M = 2.2 kg, what is the tension in the connecting string? The pulley and all surfaces are frictionless.

Question 3

In the figure shown, the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the incline is 0.40. What is the magnitude of the acceleration of the suspended block as it falls? Disregard any pulley mass or friction in the pulley.
