# Movable pulley

The system shown in the diagram has two movable pulleys each of mass $$m$$ and a third pulley fixed to the ceiling.

When the system is released from rest, the movable pulleys accelerate. Find the sum of the magnitudes of the accelerations of the 2 pulleys in $$\text{m/s}^2.$$


Details and Assumptions:

• Take $$g=10\text{ m/s}^2$$.

• Neglect friction everywhere.
