# What is the force of contact between the two blocks?

What is the force of contact between the two blocks?
Two blocks are in contact on a horizontal table. A force is applied on one of the blocks at a 30 degree angle (from the horizontal). The system moves towards the right. M1 = 2,00 kg and m2 = 1,00 km and F=60N and the kinetic friction between the two blocks is uc =0,250. What is the force of contact between the two blocks ??

i understand what to do if there was one block,.. but two ?

Welcome to the PF.

Always start with free body diagrams (FBDs). Do one for each block, and post what you have.
