A train locomotive is pulling two cars of the same mass behind it

A train locomotive is pulling two cars of the same mass behind it, Fig. 4–51. Determine the ratio of the tension in the coupling (think of it as a cord) between the locomotive and the first car (FT1), to that between the first car and the second car (FT2), for any nonzero acceleration of the train. You need to draw a FBD for each car.
