Two boxes (b1 = 23 kg and b2 = 57 kg) are being pushed across a horizontal frictionless surface, as the drawing shows. The 48-N pushing force is horizontal and is applied to the 23-kg box, which in turn pushes against the 57-kg box. Find the magnitude of the force that the 23-kg box applies to the 57-kg box.
