Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact with each other. A force F is applied to block A and the blocks start to slide to the right of their initial position. Determine the acceleration of the system, if m_A = 12 kg, m_B = 38 kg, m_C = 4700 g, and F = 198 N.
Draw a free-body diagram for each block.
