# Magnitude of Horizontal and Vertical Acceleration

A block of mass m1 is attached to a massless, ideal string. This string wraps around a massless pulley and then wraps around a second pulley that is attached to a block of mass m2 that is free to slide on a frictionless table. The string is firmly anchored to a wall and the whole system is frictionless.

Use the coordinate system indicated in the figure when solving this problem.
