 P: 331 Tension, 2 masses, 2 cords hanging vertical Well the only 'template' i can think of will be $$\sum F$$=ma where F is all the forces acting on a object. For your case T-mg=0 when they are in equilibrium aka not moving and T-mg=ma when they are moving and the 'a' will be the acceleration of the object.
