Hope someone can help me with this one. I have two blocks with m1 and m2 connected to two pulleys. I need to figure out T1, T2, a1, and a2 using only the values of g, m1, and m2. But ive been unable to come up with an equation that will work with it. I have a picture attached.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I tried using the following expression: ((m2*g)-(m1)*g)/(m1+m2) to find a1, but that didnt work and im stumped. does anyone have any ideas? any help would be great!
