Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Consider the free body diagrams as shown in the file attached. Let the acc of system is a. For the washer T+Nm1g=m1a ............................(1) For the bucket TNm2g=m2a ............................(2) (a) a=0 Eqns (1) and (2) become T+Nm1g=0 TNm2g=0 Adding and rearranging, T=(m1+m2)/2g T=325N (b) We are specified the value of T here as 325+32.5=357.5N eqns (1)and (2) become 357.5+Nm1g=m1a 357.5Nm2g=m2a Adding, 715(m1+m2)g=(m1+m2)a Solve for 'a'
