Homework Help: college physics

Posted by Ryan on Thursday, December 17, 2009 at 8:44pm.

Two blocks with masses m and M are pushed along a horizontal frictionless furface by a horizontal applied force. The magnitude of the force either of these blocks has on the other is:

M being a bigger mass than m of course. I think the answer is:
mF/(M-m) or maybe MF/(M+m) but I'm not really 100% sure how to go about doing it. I know the forces are going to be equal though...
