Two Boxes Of Fruit On A Frictionless Horizontal Surface Are Connected By A Light (1)

Two boxes of fruit on a frictionless horizontal surface are connected by a light string as in Figure P4.65, where m1 = 10 kg and m2 = 20 kg. A force of F = 50 N is applied to the 20 kg block. Figure P4.69 (a) Determine the acceleration of each block and the tension in the string. acceleration of m1 m/s2 acceleration of m2 2 m/s2 tension in the string 3 N (b) Repeat the problem for the case where the coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the surface is 0.10. acceleration of m1 m/s2 acceleration of m2 5 m/s2 tension in the string 6 N
