Figure shows the position of 1.5 kg and 1 kg mass at initial and final status. It can be seen from figure that string length from 1.5 kg mass to pully is changed to √5 m. Initially string length from 1.5 kg mass to pully was 1 m. Hence the height raised by 1 kg mass is (√5-1)m.
Let us account the energy gain/loss.
1.5 kg mass has lost its potential energy of height 1 m. This loss of potential energy ΔE1 = 1.5×9.8*1 = 14.7 Joules
1 kg mass has increased its potential energy of height (√5-1) metre is ΔE2 = 1×9.8×(√5-1) = 12.11 Joules.
The difference of energy between ΔE1 and ΔE2 is converted into kinetic energy of 1.5 kg mass at final status.
