so you have two boxes m1 and m2 with weights 12kg and 23kg respectfully, with a rope connecting the two and also a rope pullling m2 with force 50n. I know how to find the tension of the string connecting the 2 and acceleration but how do you do this with respect to friction where the coeff of kenetic friction between each block and the surface is .1? Thanks for the help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

m1---T--- m2---->50N

m1=12kg

m2=23kg

T=17.14
