A mass of 25kg is being pulled to the right by an applied force of 85 N. A mass of 8 kg is located between the applied force and the 25 kg mass. The coefficient of friction is 0.2What is the friction force of each mass?
So for the 25 kg mass the friction force is 49 N. The friction force for the 8 kg mass is 15.7 N
What is the acceleration of each system?
So the acceleration is 0.615 m/s^2
