## Homework Statement

Two blocks m (16kg) and M (88kg) are as shown in the figure. If the co-efficient of friction b/w the blocks is 0.38 but the surface beneath the block is frictionless, what is the minimum force required to hold m against M?

How would you go about solving this kind of a problem? which concept am i required to use?

## Homework Equations

F(friction)= c.o.f * F(normal)

## The Attempt at a Solution

So i tried solving it (its too lengthy to write exactly what i did) but i ended up with a final answer of F = 2.68e3 N. Can someone double check that? thanks
