    from the attachment, i need to answer question 2.15c and 2.16.

    here is what i did with the questions:

    in the first question i got the next set of equations, which apparently are incorrect cause i didnt get the answer from the book:
    wher a' is the accleration of mass M3 and a is of the other two, T' is the tension on M3 and T is the tension on the other two.

    for the second question i got the next set of equations, which is also incorrect cause they for accelration with the respect to the y direction:

    thanks in advance.
