This is a problem from my Kinematics unit and I am struggling to solve it:
Two toboggans are connected by a rope. The first toboggan has a mass of 60kg and the second has a mass of 40kg. The two toboggans are pulled by a rope connected to the first toboggan.If the force exerted on the rope is 250N[E], and friction between the toboggans and the ice can be ignored:
a)Find the acceleration of the toboggans.
b)The tension in the rope connecting the toboggans("tension" is the force on the rope).
