“A particle of mass 2m is on a plane inclined at an angle 36.86 to the horizontal. The particle is attached to one end of a light inextensible string. The string runs parallel to a line of greatest slope of the plane, passes over a smooth pulley at the top of the plane and then hangs vertically carrying a particle of mass 3m at its other end. The system is released from rest with a single taut. Find the acceleration of each particle and tension in the string when the particles are moving freely, given that the plane is smooth.”
