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

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