Almost. Fix your first equation using cupid.callin's hint.m2g-t=m2a
t=m1a
Luckily you have two equations.but i am missing acceleration and tension so how do i solve when i have 2 unknowns?
you sure tension on m2 till be just T ?
and use the hint of question to find the acceleration of the blocks
That's a different problem. In your problem there's a pulley attached to the falling mass. Get the idea, don't just copy the equation.i'm not sure what you mean by that.. I'm looking at the link he gave me using the horrizontal pulley... Is this not the right equation?
We are helping. (But we're not going to do it for you.)i don't see why you guys can't help me with the right equation
No.and for acceleration m2*gravity/m1+m2 = acceleration right??

No.
Don't skip steps. Fix your equation for the falling mass. Then you can solve for the acceleration and tension.
What are all the forces acting on m2? Each rope segment applies its own tension.
You don't 'add it' to the equation, you use it to come up with a correct equation. The approach is always the same: ΣF = ma.it has gravity and tension from both ropes..
I have no idea how to add this to the equation though.
i just don't understand that equation.. You're not doing the problem for me be helping me with an equation... ;[
