A friction problem

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.


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

m1=12kg
m2=23kg
T=17.14

Draw the freebody diagrams of both blocks. What forces act on the block? How can you account for them?
 
what about accel?
