We consider the case shown in the figure below. Two objects with masses m and M are connected with a taut string running over a pulley. The pulley rotates without friction. The two masses are given as M = 6.23 kg and m = 2.54 kg. A second taunt string connects the heavier object vertically to the ceiling. Assume that both strings and the pulley are massless. Now we cut the string connecting the object with the mass M to the ceiling. Calculate the magnitude of the acceleration of mass M.
