## Homework Statement

All surfaces are frictionless, pulley is massless. What force, F is needed so that m3 does not rise or fall?

Picture attached

## Homework Equations

F=ma

## The Attempt at a Solution

Found acceleration of system by dividing F by all three masses.

Found Fictitious force felt by m2 as a result of the acceleration.

Equated this fictitious force with m3g, isolated F.

Just wanted to know if this is the right method towards solving this problem, or am I missing something obvious/big?
