1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://img293.imageshack.us/img293/1212/47236686fi5.png [Broken] I have to find the acceleration (magnitude and direction) Tension in T1, and T2 2. Relevant equations a = F/m P = F/A Fg = mg 3. The attempt at a solution Well, i figured out the acceleration, by finding the difference in Fg between the two sides, and dividing that by the mass. I get .75m/s^2. Using that, I can get that the net force is 7kgx.75m/s^2 = 5.25N I don't know how to get from there to the tension, mostly b/c the forces are changed by gravity, and tension is affected by gravity.
