Homework Help: Pulley and Table Problem

  1. Oct 25, 2006 #1
    The system shown in the figure is accelerating. Asume that there is no friction anywhere in the system and that the mass of the string can be neglected. The values of the masses are:

    m1=5.00 kg
    m2=8.00 kg

    Determine the acceleration of the system.

    Figure and work done so far shown here:

    Where do I go from here? How do I solve for the acceleration?
