Homework Help: Question on Friction

  1. Dec 5, 2007 #1
    I have a question on a Friction problem I have received. The question is, If the force acting on the two bricks is 5.0 N, how much time will elapse before the bricks come to rest.

    Infomation given- The two bricks are sliding together, the wieghts are 24.5 N and 36.8 N, they are moving at a speed of 1.77 m/sec.

    Is 5.0 N the friction force? If so, figure out the acceleration of the bricks using Newton's 2nd law.
