Q. Two blocks are sliding across a table pushed by a force F from the left equal to 23 N. The force of friction from the table on m1 is 4 N and the force of friction on m2 is 12 N. m1 = 2 kg and m2 = 6 kg.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) What is the magnitude acceleration of the entire system?

I figured this part out. Turns out to be 0.88 m/s2

But need help with the following parts.

b) What is the magnitude of force from m1 on m2?

c) What is the magnitude of acceleration of only m1?

d) What is the magnitude of force from m2 on m1?

Thanks,

Naeem
