How do you approach solving pulley problems with multiple objects, like the one in the attached pictures

Step 1

Since we are entitled to answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3 as you have not mentioned the subparts you need help with. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts you’d like to get answered.

Step 2

Given:

Mass of smaller block = 2.10 kg

Mass of larger block = 2.25 kg

Gravitational acceleration = 9.8 m/s^{2}

Step 3

Part (a): on releasing the masses,

m1 (heavier mass) will move in downward directio...
