2 masses are tied in the followin configuaration, the 1st with a mass of m1 the 2nd mass of m2, pulleys and ropes have no mass or friction.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what is the acceleration of each mass, using only parameters g, m1, and m2

not too much i can see from this, i know that |a1|=2|a2|,

i think that

1 F=m1a=m1g-T

a1=g-T/m1

2 F=m2a=m2g-2T

a2=g-2t/m2

not sure about those though,
