two bodies of mass m1 and m2 are attached to two ends of a string which passes over a massless and frictionless pulley. find the acceleration of the bodies and the tension of the string. m1 is bigger than m2

  • mechanics -

    a = [(m1 - m2)/(m1 + m2) ]*g

    m1*g -T = m1*a
    T = m1*(g-a)
    = 2*m1*m2*g/(m1+m2)
