The force F pulls upwards two masses, m1 and m2(m2>m1), which are connected to each othet via a massless pulley. The masses are perched on the ground before movement starts. A. What is the acceleration of each one of the respective masses in each of the following situations: 1)F<2*m1*g 2)2*m1*g<F<2*m2*g 3)2*m2*g<F B. What is the rope's tension in each situation? Though I'd viewed similar questions posted here, I couldn't draw any solution to this particular case involving as many parmeters as it does. Also, since, as I understand it, the heavier mass doesn't accelerate at all during the first stages of movement, but later does, I didn't grasp how to calculate the acceleration. I assumed that I should first treat both masses as one, and then address each seperately - though I wasn't sure how to proceed in that direction. (sorry for the inverted image) Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
