A 24.0 kg box (m1) rests on a table.(b) A 13.0 kg box (m2) is placed on top of the 24.0 kg box, as shown in Fig. 4-35.
Determine the normal force that the table exerts on the 24.0 kg box.
Determine the normal force that the 24.0 kg box exerts on the 13.0 kg box.
if both boxes are stacked, the force on the table is (m1+m2)g
The lower box exerts a force equal to the weight of the upper box, otherwise, the top box would be falling through the lower.
