Question: In the figure with Problem 87 the block of mass

In the figure with Problem 87, the block of mass m1 slides to the right with coefficient of kinetic friction μk on a horizontal surface. The block is connected to a hanging block of mass m2 by a light cord that passes over a light, frictionless pulley.
(a) Find the acceleration of each of the blocks and the tension in the cord.
(b) Check your answers in the special cases m1 << m2, m1 >> m2, and m1 = m2.
(c) For what value of m2 (if any) do the two blocks slide at constant velocity? What is the tension in the cord in that case?
