1. Two blocks on a frictionless horizontal surface are connected by a light string.
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2. Find the acceleration of the system.
Answer in units of m/s^2.

2. What is the tension in the string between the blocks?
Answer in units of N.

3. If the surface were frictional, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is 0.1, what would be the new
acceleration?
Answer in units of m/s^2.

4. What would be the new tension in the
string between the blocks?
Answer in units of N
