    particles on wedge.

    particles on wedge.-win_20161206_21_11_40_pro.jpg

    im stuck on question 8. the equation i got for the wedge is .6R -.5S=ma r stands for relative force of the particle s stands for relative force of the wedge . i got the equation 4mg-R+5m(.6a) for the particle where a stands for acceleration of the wedge. does anyone know where to go from here. are my equations wrong? i can post a picture of my diagram if anyone needs it
