An object with mass m1=5.00 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= 10.0 kg. Find the acceleration of each object and the tension in the cable.

    the pulling force is m2*g

    the masses being pulled is m1+m2

    a= F/m= m2*g/(m1+m2)

    tension in the cable: Tension=m1*a
