In the situation shown in the figure, a person is pulling with a constant, nonzero force F on string 1, which is attached to block A. Block A is also attached to block B via string 2, as shown.
For this problem, assume that neither string stretches and that friction is negligible. Both blocks have finite (nonzero) mass.
