Homework Help: Physics Force Question

  1. Jan 12, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A 2kg block hanging off the edge of a table pulls a 3kg block on a frictionless table. What is the mass of the system, the net force on the system, and th acceleration of the blocks.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Not sure
    20N and 30N so maybe net force 10N but not sure about the rest

    Hi there,

    To simplify your solution, just look at what is acting on the 3kg block on the frictionless table.
