Two crates connected by a rope lie on a horizontal surface. Crate A has mass mA, and crate B has mass mB. The coefficient of kinetic friction between each crate and the surface is μk. The crates are pulled to the right at constant velocity by a horizontal force F→. Draw one or more free-body diagrams to calculate the following in terms of mA, mB, and μk:
a) the magnitude of F→ and
b) the tension in the rope connecting the blocks.
