im stuck on the last question of this lab. "what combination or masses would make the accelration of an atwood machine equal to 1/2 g?"(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a = g (m1 - m2/m1=m2)

so i have to find out what m1 and m2 are eual to in that forumula if g = 1/2

im thinking a is equal to 9.81 because the accelration on an atwood machine is caused by gravity

im stuck help would be nice:rofl:

ive tryed rearangeing forumlas but i hvant got anywhere yet
