Where a force of 200N pulls two blocks together(as one system) across a horizontal table top(µ=0.800)
$m_A$ = 5.00kg, $m_B$ = 10.0kg
- Find the acceleration of the system.
- Find f$_k$ between B and A
I found a to be 5.485 m/s² which agrees with the textbook's 5.5m/s².
The textbook says b is 173N but I can't seem to get a number even close to that. How does one go about solving this kind of equation, please provide calculations or formulas in the order they are needed, insteed of just abstract steps.
