i'm working without my textbook and going by the some solutions that i have so i need some help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) Two masses, m1 and m2, joined with a cord are dragged along the horizontal plane surface. the applied force is F=20N, mass m1=m2=3kg, and the acceleration is 0.50 m/s. what is the tension, T, in the connecting cord if the frictional forces on the two blocks blocks are equal? How large is the frictional force, F, on each block?

diagram:

| m1 |-----| m2|------>F
