**1. Two blocks, of masses M = 3 kg and m = 2 kg, are in contact on a horizontal table. A constant horizontal force of magnitude F = 5 N is applied to block M as shown. There is a constant frictional force of magnitude f = 1 N between the table and the block m, but no frictional force between the table and the first block M.**

(a) calculate the acceleration of the two blocks

(b) calculate the force of contact between the blocks.

(a) calculate the acceleration of the two blocks

(b) calculate the force of contact between the blocks.

**2. F=ma**

F=[itex]\mu[/itex]N

F=[itex]\mu[/itex]N

**3. Usually these problems are no problem for me; however, this one is confusing me tremendously since there is only friction on one block and not the other. I'm just not sure how it affects the answers to the questions being asked.**
