OK, this should be my last question. Again, I need an answer soon, but I'm also here to learn.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two Blocks are in contact on a frictionless table, one larger than the other. A horizontal force is applied to the larger block, pushing against the smaller block. (a) If m_A = 2.3 kg (the larger block), m_B = 1.2 kg (the smaller block), and F = 3.2 N, find the magnitude of the force between the two blocks. (b) Show that if a force of the same magnitude F is applied to the smaller block but in the opposite direction, the magnitude of the force between the blocks is 2.1 N, which is not the same value calculated in (a). (c) Explain the difference. I'm not quite sure what to do with the information given, so again, any help would be great!
