- Relevant Equations
- ##T_1=\frac{(M_1+M_2)}{2}g##

##T_2=\frac{\sqrt 3(M_1+M_2)}{2}g##

##T_3=M_2g##

Attempt:

By drawing the Free Body diagrams and calculating the different tensions, I got the following results

##T_1=\frac{(M_1+M_2)}{2}g##

##T_2=\frac{\sqrt 3(M_1+M_2)}{2}g##

##T_3=M_2g##

But, I am not sure what the answer is as although ##T_2>T_1## but ##T_3## does not depend on ##M_1##. So, I am not able to relate the different tensions to each other.

I guess I can ignore ##M_1## and get the result ##T_3>T_2>T_1##. But, I am not sure about that.
