A force of 12.8 N pulls horizontally on a 0.9 kg block that slides on a rough, horizontal surface. This block is connected by a horizontal string to a second block of mass m2 = 2.04 kg on the same surface. The coefficient of kinetic friction is µk = 0.19 for both blocks.
(a) What is the acceleration of the blocks?
m/s2
(b) What is the tension in the string?
N
