Two objects are connected by a string of
length 4.8 m and negligible mass. The 10 kg
block is placed on a smooth table top(3.6 m from end of table),and the
7kg block hangs over the edge of the table. The 7 kg block is then released from
rest at a distance of 1.2 m above the floor at
time t = 0.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Determine the acceleration of the 7kg block
as it descends.
Answer in units of m/s^2. Round  decimal places

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

regard the two objects as single object, then we have 

7*g = 17a 

a =  4.04 m/s^2

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
