Block A (61 N) and block B (40 N) are connected by a massless cord and are at rest. Given $\mu_s= 0.8$. The friction on A is:
The maximum static friction that the block A can provide is $\mu_s N=48.8 Newton$. It is larger than the weight of the block B. In this case, the system will not move and the tension is 40 N.
