Homework Help: Physics

A block of mass m1 = 4.80 kg sits on top of a second block of mass m2 = 15.6 kg, which in turn is on a horizontal table. The coefficients of friction between the two blocks are Ás = 0.300 and Ák = 0.100. The coefficients of friction between the lower block and the rough table are Ás = 0.500 and Ák = 0.400. You apply a constant horizontal force to the lower block, just large enough to make this block start sliding out from between the upper block and the table.


Determine the magnitude force needed to initiate this motion.


Determine the acceleration you measure for each block in this situation
