This lecture series will cover Newton's Second Law of Physics: F=ma.

In this video, I will demonstrate how this applies a pulley system operating on masses on a frictionless table.

Problem Text:
A frictionless table with a pulley on each end has a 1kg mass placed in the middle. Two strings are attached to each side (of the mass) and hung over a pulley. A 4kg mass is attached to the left string and a 2kg mass is attached to the right string. Find the acceleration.
