Let the tension in the wire be T

As the system is in equilibrium acceleration of the blocks = 0

Equating the forces on the first block along the direction of Tension we have

\\T=m_{1}g sin\theta \\ T=10\times 9.8\times \frac{3}{5}\\ T=58.8\ N

Equating the forces on the first block in the vertical direction

\\T=m_{2}g\\ 58.8=m_{2}\times 9.8\\\ m_{2}=6\ kg
