Three blocks rest on a frictionless, horizontal table, with m1 = 9 kg and m3 = 16 kg. A horizontal force F = 104 N is applied to block 1, and the acceleration of all three blocks is found to be 3.3 m/s2. 1) Find m2 2)What is the normal force between 2 and 3?

Three blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are in contact with each other. A force F is applied to block A (mass mA). (a) Draw a free body diagram for each block. I've drawn it and it looks like this, but I'm not sure if I'm including everything. ^normal force F-->|...

Can someone help me with this problem? It requires a lot of visualizing and I've never been great at problems like that. A pair of blocks of mass m1 =29.0 kg, and m2 =58.0 kg, are being pushed on a horizontal surface by a constant forces of magnitude F=87.0 N. The angle θ...

Three blocks on a frictionless surface are connected by massless strings, with M1 = 1.40 kg, M2 = 2.40 kg, and M3 = 3.60 kg. Due to the force F acting on M3, as shown, the system accelerates to the right. Given that T1 is 3.50 N, calculate T2
