Two blocks are connected by a string as in the figure below.
What is the upper block's acceleration if the coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the table is 0.10?
Express your answer to two significant figures and include the appropriate units.
The Attempt at a Solution
Attempt: I drew a free-body diagram for two blocks.
m1 = mass one (2.0kg)
m2 = mass two (1.0kg)
Block 1: Fx=m1(a) = T -∫
Block 2: Fx=0
I would find the normal force for Block 1 Fy then plug it into friction. Then...I got lost.
