(b)
Copy the diagram and indicate all the forces acting in the system.
(c) If M1<M2, indicate the direction of the motion of each particle on the diagram in (b) above and
establish the equations of motion for the system. (5 marks)
(d) Given that M1 = 2kg and M2 = 3kg, calculate the tension in the string and the acceleration of the
system. (4 marks)
(e) State one condition necessary for the system to be in equilibrium. (1 mark)
