With a mass on a frictionless surface connected to a string that is sent over and down to a mass. Would that increase or decrease the acceleration compared to the equation, a=g(m). I'm just stumped on how to think of this. The pulley is not included in the equation but how would I figure out the difference?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
