5.62: a) The most direct way to do part (a) is to consider the blocks as a unit, with total weight 4.80 N. Then the normal force between block B and the lower surface is 4.80 N, and the friction force that must be overcome by the force F is N, 1.44 or N, 1.440 N) 80 . 4 )( 30 . 0 ( k = = n μ to three figures. b) The normal force between block B and the lower surface is still 4.80 N, but since block
