There is a table, and a napkin on it. The napkin has a mass mn=71.6 g. On the napkin, there is a tea cup with mass mc=104.6 g. What is the minimum force required for someone to pull the napkin out from under the tea cup? Assume that between the table and the napkin the friction is µk= 0.484, while the coefficient of static friction between the tea cup and the napkin is µs=0.705. Express your answer in Newtons.
The Attempt at a Solution
ΣFxNapkin=F-frC-frT (where C is cup and T is table)
ΣFxCup=frN (where N is napkin)
I have also included a photo of my FBD
How can I proceed with this question? Do I have a correct FBD?
