The problem is a modified version of two basic block problems. This is my work so far, but I end up with two equations for acceleration fromm1andm2, I don't understand how to use both equations. So my questions are -

1) Did I define the problem correctly to begin with?

2) Which acceleration value do I plug in for the final expression for F? and why?

3) Overall, is my derivation correct?

This is not a hw problem. I just made it up to test my conceptual understanding.
