Questions  

Two block of masses 3 kg and 1 kg are kept in contact with each other on a frictionless horizontal surface. If a force of 10 N is applied on the larger block what is the acceleration of the system? What is the contact force between the two blocks?

a
2.5m/s2 ; 2.5N
b
5m/s2 ; 5N
c
5m/s2 ; 2.5N
d
2.5m/s2 ; 5N

detailed solution

Correct option is A

As the bodies will move with common acceleration.

a=Fm1+m2=101+3=2.5ms-2.

Contact force= m1a=1x2.5=2.5N.
