# A block of mass m 1 = 16.0 kg is on a frictionless table to the left of a second block of mass m 2 = 24.0 kg, attached by a horizontal string (Fig. P4.55). If a horizontal force of 1.20 × 10 2 N is exerted on the block m 2 in the positive x -direction, (a) use the system approach to find the acceleration of the two blocks. (b) What is the tension in the string connecting the blocks? Figure P4.55
