So the next step is to isolate the object and put all forces that are applied TO the body.

Memorizing formulas is dangerous, because sometimes theta can refer to something else.

According your your FBD, "TMg cos 60 =Ma" is not correct.

M is 5kg for both find the acceleration

dw:1358007244777:dw So you have two unknowns (T and a) and two equations. :)

m=5kg for both i got a=1.830 which is wrong

Your equation assumed that the masses accelerate DOWN the 30 deg. plane, so a<0 is correct! :)

mathmateBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
It is logical that the masses slide down the 60 deg. plane. So put mg sin(60)T = ma , and Tmg sin(30) = ma This assumes mgsin(60)>T (=> a>0) and T>mg sin(30) , again => a>0

so what ur doing is making accelration + right
 one year ago

You don't always have to guess the direction right the first time. Make a reasonable guess, using logic, and if it comes out negative, reexamine to see if it is logical, or if you made a mistake. This is how scientiests work: examine the work when there is a surprise.
