Step 1: FBD - Draw individual free body diagrams of A and B.
Step 2: Newton - From each FBD, write down the Newton's equation for components along the incline.
Step 3: Kinematics - You will need to use the cable-pulley system kinematics that we worked with earlier in the semester. Please review the material from Section 1.D of the lecture book to relate the accelerations of blocks A and B.
Step 4: Solve - Combine your equations from Steps 2 and 3 to solve for the accelerations of blocks A and B.
