A M1_1 = 8 kg box rests on a table and is connected to a second box of mass M2_2 = 4 kg via a rope that hangs over a pulley as shown. The coefficient of static friction, μs\mu_s is 0.2, and the coefficient of kinetic friction μk\mu_k is 0.1. Use a free body diagrams to answer the following.

B. If the box does cause the system to move, what is the acceleration of the system, and the tension in the rope?

The large block m1_1 is 10 kg, and the smaller block m2_2 is 5 kg. The applied force, F is 100 N. The large block m1_1 experiences a 40 N frictional force opposing the applied force, and the smaller block m2_2 experiences a 20 N frictional force. Find the action-reaction force between the boxes. (This question requires Newton's Third Law.)

The large block m1_1 is 10 kg, and the smaller block m2_2 is 1 kg. The coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.1. Determine the acceleration of the system and the contact force between the blocks. The applied force, F is 30 N. Also draw a free body diagram for both blocks.
