A 12.0 kg block sits on a frictionless table. On top of this block is placed a 5.00 kg block. The coefficient of static friction between the two blocks is 0.70. a) What is the maximum force that can be applied horizontally to the 5.00 kg block before it slips?
b) What is the acceleration of the
5.0 kg block (just before it would slip)?
b) What is the maximum force that can be applied horizontally to the 12.0 kg block before the 5.0 kg block begins to slip?
