Two blocks of masses m1 = 4.00 kg and m2 = 3.00 kg are placed in contact with each
other on a frictionless horizontal surface. A constant force F = 9.00 N is applied to the
block of mass m1. a) Determine the magnitude of the acceleration of the two-block
system. b) Determine the magnitude of the contact force between the two blocks.
