## Homework Statement

Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact with each other. A force F is applied to block A (mass mA ). If mA=mB=mC=10.0 kg and F = 96.0 N, determine the force of contact that each block exerts on its neighbor.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

a=96/(10+10+10)=3.2N

contact force between mA and mB: 96-3.2*10=64

contact force between mB and mC: 3.2*10=32 or 64-3.2*10=32

did i solve this right?

thank you
