The weight of the block on a table is 494 N and that of the hanging block is 175 N. Ignore all frictional effects, and assuming the pulley to be massless.

(a) Find the acceleration of the two blocks.
m/s2 =?

(b) Find the tension in the cord.
N =?

Please show your work.

Also, rereading your post, you talk about masses and then say that a pulley is frictionless. Please state the exact question, including how the situation is set up-- we're not mind-readers!
