Let T be tension in rope

and a be accln of blocks

since 3kg is heavier one, it will tend to fall due to gravity

so, on balancing eqns, we have a= (m1-m2).g/(m1+m2)

    T = 2m1.m2.g/(m1+m2)

so T = 24 N and a = 2 m/sec2

at 4th second, after free fall , it falls a distance S = 1/2*2*16 = 16 m

work done by gravity = mgh = 3*10*16 = 480 J
