Concept #1: Stacked Blocks

Example #1: Stacked Block Tied to Wall

Practice: A 4kg block sits on top of a 6kg block which is on a frictionless surface. The coefficients of friction between the two blocks are μs=0.5 and μk=0.3. Calculate the maximum force you can pull on the bottom block with so that the objects move together.
