Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for massless pulley... \[F=ma\] \[mgT=ma, T _{1}=m _{1} gm _{1} a\] \[Tmg=ma, T _{2}=m _{2}a+m _{2}g\] acceleration is the same for both side, tensions will cancel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[m _{1}(ga)=m _{2}(g+a)\] 4(ga)=2(g+a) 39.24a=19.6+2a 19.6=6a a=3.3 m/s^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1net force: if you look at the side with the heavier mass, you can see that the force acting on the mass is gravity and tension. look at the lighter side, same thing. the tension is the same on both sides so they cancel. now the driving force of the system is the 4kg mass. the resistive force is the 2kg mass. so 4g2g... 4g2g=19.6N

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1plug in numbers in the first set of equations i gave you to solve for tension. it is already set up to solve for T and it will be the same for both sides
