# Tension Problem

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

The slop has friction.

Variables: m1=4kg , m2=2kg, m3=8kg

μ (coefficient) = 0.1

α=30°

1. What is the acceleration of the system?

2. Calculate the tension of the rope between m1 to m2 and between m2 to m3.

**2. Relevant equations**

Newton’s second law and free body diagrams.

**3. The attempt at a solution**

Two boxes on a slope is new to me (I had experience with one so far). I’d appreciate any help, thank you.
