A 4.0 kg block is put on top of a 5.0 kg block. To cause the top block to slip on the bottom one while the bottom one is held fixed, a horizontal force of at least 16 N must be applied to the top block. The assembly of blocks is now placed on a horizontal, frictionless table.
(a) Find the magnitude of the maximum horizontal force F that can be applied to the lower block so that the blocks will move together and
