Two equally rough inclined planes of equal height whose inclinations to the horizon are alpha1 andalpha2, are placed back to back. Two masses m1 and m2 are placed on their inclined faces and are connected by light inextensible string passing over a smooth pulley at the common vertex of the two planes. If m1 decends, calculate the common acceleration of the masses.
