Block 1 of mass 2 kg and block 2 of mass 3 kg are connected by a string of negligible mass and are initially held in place. Block 2 is on a frictionless surface tilted at theta=30 degrees. The coefficient of kinetic friction between block 1 and the horizontal surface is .25. The pulley has negligible mass and friction. Once they are released, the blocks move. What then is the tension in the string?
