Question: draw the force diagram and solve two identical 135kg boxes...

Question details

Draw the force diagram, and solve.

Two identical 13.5-kg boxes are tied together by a light rope. One box sits on a table where the coefficient of static friction is 0.32 and the coefficient of kinetic friction is 0.18. The other box hangs off the edge of the table. Determine the acceleration of the system and the tension in the rope as the hanging box drags the other box off the table. You can ignore the mass of the rope and any friction between the rope and the table.
