Two blocks connected by a rope of negligible mass are being dragged by a horizontal force Fvec. Suppose Fvec = 70.0 N, m1 = 11.0 kg, m2 = 26.0 kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is 0.100.

Determine the tension T.

Diagram: [ m1 ] ------Tension (T)----- [ m2 ] ------> Force

2. Relevant equations

F = ma

3. The attempt at a solution

Ok I'm assuming that the Net force pulling the two blocks = 70 N

I really don't know where to start in this problem I've tried finding the Forces of the friction

on the blocks and subtraced them from the net force but I'm just confused.
