    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    View attachment Q1%20Phys131-E2%20%282nd%20law%29.pdf

    Blocks with masses of m1= 1.0 kg and m2
    = 2.0 kg are connected by a string,
    supported on a frictionless table, and
    connected by a string and pulley to a
    hanging block with a mass m3 = 3.0 kg,
    as shown (attached the doc), and released from rest.
