Two objects with masses of 4.00 kg and 6.00 kg are connected by a light string that passes over a frictionless pulley.

(a) Determine the tension in the string.

(b) Determine the acceleration of each object.

(c) Determine the distance each object will move in the first second of motion if both objects start from rest.

2. Relevant equations

W=mg

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to find the weight of both masses and then add it, but it didn't work, I tried to substract it and nothing...I really dont know what else can I do
