A block of mass
M1 = 2.7 kg
rests on top of a second block of mass
M2 = 4.7 kg,
and the second block sits on a surface that is so slippery that the friction can be assumed to be zero (see the figure below).

(a) If the coefficient of static friction between the blocks is
¦ÌS = 0.21,
how much force can be applied to the top block without the blocks slipping apart?

Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect.

(b) How much force can be applied to the bottom block for the same result?
