## Homework Statement

In Figure 5-65, a force of magnitude 13 N is applied to a FedEx box of mass m2 = 1.2 kg. The force is directed up a plane tilted by ? = 38°. The box is connected by a cord to a UPS box of mass m1 = 5.0 kg on the floor. The floor, plane, and pulley are frictionless, and the masses of the pulley and cord are negligible. What is the tension in the cord?

## Homework Equations

m1a=T

m2a=F-T-m2gsin(theta)

(im not sure if these are right)

## The Attempt at a Solution

T=F-m2gsin(theta)

T=(13)-(1.2)(9.8)(sin38)

T=5.75982105
