Consider two masses m1 and m2 connected by a thin string. Assume the following values: m1 = 4.32 kg and m2 = 1.00 kg. Ignore friction and mass of the string.

What is the acceleration of the two mass?

What should be the value of mass m1 to get the largest possible value of acceleration of the two masses? What would be the value of that maximum acceleration?
