Problem 23E

Boxes ?A? and ?B? are in contact on a horizontal, frictionless surface, as shown in Fig. Box ?A? has mass 20.0 kg and box ?B? has mass 5.0 kg. A horizontal force of 100 N is exerted on box ?A?. What is the magnitude of the force that box ?A? exerts on box ?B?? Figure:

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 23E Let us have a look at the following figure. The acceleration of the system is calculated as follows. Acceleration a = Force/(m + A ) B a = 100 N/(20.0 + 5.0) kg a = 100 N/25 kg a = 4 m/s 2 We can calculate the normal reaction exerted by box A on box B and vice versa from the second figure. Therefore, 100 N R = 20a R = 100 20a R = 100 20 × 4 N R = 20 N Therefore, the force exerted by box A on box B is 20 N.
