#### Solution Preview

The following equation can be used to calculate the acceleration that the block experiences:

y = v0 * t + 0.5 * a * t^2.

Since the block starts at rest we know that ...

#### Solution Summary

This solution calculates the acceleration and mass of an object by taking into account gravity and tension.
