Due to a cart's sudden acceleration, a 200g wooden block remains on the front of the cart and does not slide or fall off. The mass of the cart is 10kg. The coefficient of static friction between the block and the front of the cart is 0.30.

Calculate the cart's minimum acceleration if the block is to remain in place.
