A lower block is being pulled to the right across a wooden table and it is 5kg and the block on top of it weighs 2 Kg. The friction between the table and the lower block is reduces the total acceleration to be 1.5 m/s2. Friction keeps the upper block attached to the lower one. What is the force of friction acting on the upper block?
