Force of friction and pulling apart two books.
November 5th, 2022
Two identical books each with k pages are placed on the table in a way that the each page of book A is between the pages of book b. The high half of book B is on top of book A.
Given that 1) the coefficient of static friction on the surface of card A is mu; 2) Each page of the book has a mass of m; 3) Book A does not move from the table. What is the minimum amount of horizontal force applied to book B in order to pull it out of book A?
