Two masses m1 = 2 kg and m2 = 4 kg are connected by a light string. Mass m2 is connected to mass M = 14 kg by a string that passes over an ideal pulley. Determine the following quantities when the system is released from rest.
(a) The acceleration of the masses
(b) The tension in the string connecting M to m2
(b) The tension in the string connecting m2 to m1
