Two blocks of mass m1 = 9.20 kg and m2 are connected by a light string. When a horizontal force F = 105 N is applied to m1 as shown in the figure below, the acceleration of the system is 3.20 m/s2 towards the left and the tension in the string connecting the two blocks is 62.0 N. The blocks are moving on a rough surface with an unknown coefficient of kinetic friction. Determine the coefficient of kinetic friction between the blocks and the surface, and the mass m2 of the second block. Include a free-body diagram for each block as part of your solution.
