(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two blocks, A and B remain stuck together as they are pulled to the right by a force F = 200 N to the horizontal right. B is on a rough horizontal tabletop (coefficiant of kinetic friction is .800)

a) what is the acceleraton of the system

b) what is the force of friction between the two objects?

pic below:

mass of A = 5.00 kg

mass of B = 10.0 kg

2. Relevant equations

m A = 5.00 kg

m B = 10.0 kg

F = 200N

kinetic friction = 0.800

3. The attempt at a solution

a) i already found the acceleration to be 5.5 m/s^2

b) this is where i am STUCK. all i have is the coeff of the friction which is .800

what do i do with it??
