Q1. What is the accel. of the 8 kg. mass on the table. My answer was that since the pulley system is frictionless then the tension on both masses will be equal. Therefore there will be no resultant force causing an acceleration on the 8kg. mass on the table. Is that right?

Q2. What is the tension on the string connected to the 2kg. mass. Answer: The formula that I presume I use is T = (2m1m2 /m1 + m2) 9.8

Am I on the right track? What would be the final unit in the amount of tension?

Thanks!
