Calculate the maximum force required to accelerate the box from rest and not move the glass on it's surface on top of the box. I am given the mass of the box and glass, and both the static and kinetic coefficients of both objects. I have to create a spreadsheet that can accept any number that is inputted

2. Relevant equations

Ff=umg, fnet=Fg+Fn+Ff+Fa

3. The attempt at a solution

so far ive got the maximum force of static friction for the glass, using the equation F=umg... Im unsure how the box beneath it affects the force applied to the glass
