Question: Two blocks on a level frictionless table are in con tact

Two blocks on a level, frictionless table are in con-tact. The mass of the left block is 5.00 kg and the mass of the right block is 10.0 kg, and they accelerate to the left at 1.50 m/s2. A person on the left exerts a force (F1) of 75.0 N to the right. Another person exerts an unknown force (F2) to the left.
(a) Determine the force F2.
(b) Calculate the force of contact N between the two blocks (that is, the normal force at their vertical touching surfaces).
