  1. Would it be asking to much for you to use spaces instead of commas between words?

    Get the mass M1 of the first block from
    F = 40 N = M1* 2.5 m/s^2
    M1 = 16 kg
    Dropping the second block on top increases total mass to 20 kg.
    With the same force acting, acceleration is reduced by a factor 16/20 = 0.8
