You've got a start on your force diagram. It looks good as far as you've gone. Finish it. First hint: F = ma.

As Bystander writes, you need to show all the forces in the diagram. However, I would suggest you do this with separate free body diagrams for each part on which a force of interest acts directly. How many such components are there?

By the way, please use thread titles which give some guidance as to the topic. It will help you get timely answers.

The trick is to realise that everything must accelerate at the same rate because they are tied together.
