## The two blocks scenario

Consider one block placed on top of another. The blocks are cuboidal with a horizontal surface of contact. Suppose the lower block is and the upper block is , and the lower block is resting on a fixed floor. Suppose the coefficients of friction are:

- is the limiting coefficient of static friction between and the floor.
- is the coefficient of kinetic friction between and the floor.
- is the limiting coefficient of static friction between and .
- is the coefficient of kinetic friction between and .
