A 1.2kg object is placed on a frictionless table and is attached to a hanging mass using a light string over a frictionless pulley in a fletcher's trolley arrangement. The 1.20kg object accelerates along the table at 2.31m/s while the hanging object accelerates down at the same rate. Determine the mass of the hanging object.
