Q2. A block of massmrests on the left edge of a block of larger massM. The coefficient of kinetic
friction between the two blocks is , and the surface on which the larger block rests is frictionless.
A constant horizontal force of magnitude F is applied to the block of mass m, setting it in motion
as shown in figure below.
(a) Draw a free body diagram indicating all the forces acting on mass m.
(b) What is the acceleration of the mass m?
