Can somebody show me how to solve this:

Suppose you dont have a watch, or a timer, and you want to use an Atwood's machine as a timer to give an accurate time interval (for the vertical fall) oft = 10.0s. Suppose the vertical fall, y, is 1.30m. Determine values of M and m which would make t - 10s.

Some formulas

a = (2h)/t2

g= a x ((2M+m)/m)/m
