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 *m*_{1} = ** 0.55** kg and the mass of the right block

*m*

_{2}=

**kg. The angle between the applied force and the horizontal is**

*4.3**θ*=

**°. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the blocks and the surface is**

*65**μ*=

**. Each block has an acceleration of**

*0.22**a*=

**m/s**

*3.6*^{2}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.
