Newton's Laws of Motion
1. A block of mass 2 kg placed on a long frictionless horizontal table is  pulled horizontally by a constant force F. It is found to move 10 m in first two seconds. Find the magnitude of F.
Given that m = 2kg, displacement s = 10m in time t = 2s and u = 0ms

Newton's Laws of Motion
The tension T

is the effect of gravitational force of bothblocks.
T

= (0.2+0.3)g = 0.5(10) N = 5 NThe tension T

is due to gravitational force of the lowerblock.

5. Two blocks of equal mass m are tied to each other through a light string. One of the blocks is pulled along the line joining them with a constant force F. Find the tension in the string joining the two blocks.
Let the blocks accelerate by
. Then by Newton's scond law we have
