Two masses are attached by a string and released from rest, so that they both can fall freely, ignore the air resistance and find the tension in the string while it is falling freely.

    @Callisto check if im right Applying f=ma for both particle (M and m ) taking downward as positive F = ma W-T+T+W = (M+m)a Mg - T + T + mg = (M+m)a g(M+m) = (m+M)a a = g Applying for object (M) W-T = Ma (a = g) Mg - T = Mg t = 0

    The two falling masses are weightless relative to one another. Tension in the string is zero.
