Question

Two blocks of mass m_{1} = 340 g and m_{2} = 750 g are pushed by a force. The coefficient of kinetic friction between each block and the ground is 0.4. The blocks move together (with one pushing the other) with an acceleration of 225 cm/s^{2}. What is the value of the applied force in Newtons? Hint: Make sure to include the frictional force for each block.
