An object with mass m1 = 6.00 kg, rests on a frictionless horizontal table and is connected to a cable that passes over a pulley and is then fastened to a hanging object with mass m2 = 8.0 kg, as shown in the figure below. Find the acceleration of each object and the tension in the cable.

If you draw the FBD for both object separately. Then,
Positive being up and right,
T=m1a Eq 1
Tm2g=m2a Eq 2
T= m2a+m2g Eq 3
Eq 3 = Eq 1
m1a= m2a+m2g
a=m2g/(m1+m2)
since, a=x
then, T=m1x
