Answer :

In such questions, we first draw the free body diagrams. From the above diagram, we write the Newton’s equation for each mass.
Here, M = 5 kg
m = 3 kg

a = 2 m s-2

Therefore, the equations are:

Substituting the values of m, M, a and g and solving the above equations gives us:

T1 = 94.4 N

T2 = 35.4 N
