Repeat the problem for the case where the coefficient of kinetic friction between each box and the surface is 0.09.

a) find the acceleration

b) find the tension in the string

The acceleration of the system is

a=F/(m1+m2) = 58/(15+17)=1.81 m/s².

T1+T2

m1•a=T

m2•a= F-T,

T = m1•a = 15•1.81=27.5 N.

2. μ = 0.09,

T1=T2=T,

m1•a=T-F1(fr)=T- μ•N1=T- μ•m1•g

m2•a=F-T-F2(fr)= F-T- μ•N2= F-T- μ•m2•g

a•(m1+m2) = T- μ•m1•g+ F-T- μ•m2•g =F- μ•g(m1+m2),

a= {F- μ•g(m1+m2)}/ (m1+m2)=

={58 – 0.09•9.8(15+17)}/(15+17) =

=0.93 m/s²

T= m1•a+ μ•m1•g=m1(a+ μ•g) =

=15(0.93+0.09•9.8)=27.18 N
