An atwood machinre consisting of two objects of mass 300g and600g,connected by an inextensible massless string .The tension in the string is?

Let a be the accelaration in the masses and T be the tension in the string. The tension is same through out the srting.
Let m1 = 600 g and m2 = 300 g be the masses. Since m1 is heavier, it will ove downwards (with acceleration a) and m2 will move upwards (with acceleration a).
According to the Newton's second law of motion, net forces on the masses will be equal to the product of thier mass and acceleartion.
Adding 1 and 2, we get:

- SIR PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION QUICKLY. A 8000 kg engine pulls a train of 5 wagons, each of 2000 kg, along a horizontal track. If the engine exerts a force of 40000 N and the track offers a friction force of 5000 N, then calculate: (a) the net accelerating force; (b) the acceleration of the train; and (c) the force of wagon 1 on wagon 2.
- Give one example in each case a) the force is of contact b) force is at a distance
- Define the Normal Reaction force.
