a 27.5kg box is connected to a 13.75kg box on a frictionless pulley. my question is if you calculate the acceleration does that include horizontal and vertical acceleration, and if so, how do you just find the downward acceleration???

This is too vague, please explain the setup better. Are they both in the air, one on a table the other in the air?
