Question

Two blocks connected by a string are pulled across a horizontal surface by a force

applied to one of the blocks, as shown to the right. The mass of the left block m1 = 0.55 kg and the mass of the right block m2 = 4.3 kg. The angle between the applied force and the horizontal is θ = 65°. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the blocks and the surface is μ = 0.22. Each block has an acceleration of a = 3.6 m/s2 to the right. What is equation for the magnitude of the applied force F acting on the second block using variables from the problem as well as using g for the gravitational acceleration. Calculate the magnitude of the applied force F in newtons.
