- Find the constraint relation between a1,a2,a3

- Relevant Equations
- All pulleys are massless.Now for pulley 2 the upward tension T+T so the downward is 2T. And for pulley 1 since upward tension is T the downward ones must be T/2 and T/2 . Now the highlighted string is uniform so constant tension throughout ,but its coming out to be separately T/2 and 2T. Which is only possible when tension is 0, so is it really so or there's some mistake in my approach. The question just asked to find constraint relation between a1,a2,a3. I was trying to use tension constraint here and thus got struck.
