HELP!!!

A light, inextensible cord passes over a light,
frictionless pulley with a radius of 10 cm. It
has a(n) 24 kg mass on the left and a(n)
6.1 kg mass on the right, both hanging freely.
Initially their center of masses are a vertical distance 4.3 m apart.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s

At what rate are the two masses accelerating when they pass each other?
Answer in units of m/s2
