Consider the two blocks of unknown mass shown in the image. One block is sitting on a table connected by a rope over a pulley to another block hanging in the air.

Assuming frictional forces are negligible, which of the following is true concerning the acceleration, $a$, of the two block system when released?


$a = g$


$a < g$


$a > g$


There is not enough information to determine anything about the acceleration of the two block system.
