5.93: a) The only horizontal force on the two-block combination is the horizontal component of . cos , α F F The blocks will accelerate with ). ( cos 2 1 m m F a + = α b) The normal force between the blocks is , sin 1 F g m + for the blocks to move together, the product of this force and s μ must be greater than the horizontal force that the lower block exerts on the upper block. That horizontal force is one of an action-reaction pair; the
