Need help on problem

  1. Oct 2, 2004 #1
    Newton's Third Law

    I have a block mass m and a wedge mass M the block is sitting on the wedge which is initially at rest on the horizontal floor. All surfaces are frictionless. I need help on drawing a free body diagram and equation for the y-axis to find the normal force between the block and the wedge. Any help would be appreciated,

    Thank you
