1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A block of mass 3kg sits on top of a block of mass 2kg. The static coefficient of friction between the blocks is μs=0.3, and this friction keeps the top block from sliding on the bottom block. There is no friction between the bottom block and the floor. A horizontal external force Fext is applied to the bottom block, causing the blocks to accelerate to the right. How does the magnitude of the total force acting on the bottom block, Fb, compare to the magnitude of the total foce acting on the top block, Ft? a. Ft>Fb b.Ft=Fb c.Ft<Fb 2. Relevant equations None given but μs*N=Ffric and F=ma. 3. The attempt at a solution I know that all of the forces in the y direction cancel but im not sure how to tell which force is greater? I know that the answer is A but im having trouble explaining it or showing work.
