The Attempt at a Solution
My assumptions are as follows:
The sum of the tensions on the left side of the pulley is equal to the tension in right side of the pulley
The given distance between the 2kg and 10kg masses is irrelevant and not needed.
I feel like I need to solve for the acceleration of the system before I can work the first part of the problem. Also, I dont know what is being labeled as 24.8cm and whether it is relevant. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
