In the drawing, the weight of the block on the table is 466 N and that of the hanging block is 205 N. Ignore all frictional effects, and assuming the pulley to be massless.

the drawing is of two blocks, one on the table, one hanging off. connected by a pulley.

the question asks for acceleration and tension

OK, but please show some work. What are the forces acting on the 205 N mass?

What forces are acting on the 466 N mass?

What can be said about the acceleration of the masses?
