As we learnt in

Motion of Block in Contact -

- wherein

Use\:F_{net}=ma

a=\frac{F_{net}}{m_{1}+m_{2} }

 

 

 

Weight of the block is balanced by force of friction

\therefore   Weight of the block  =\mu R=0.2\times 10=2N

Correct option is 4.


Option 1)

20 N

This is an incorrect option.

Option 2)

50 N

This is an incorrect option.

Option 3)

100 N

This is an incorrect option.

Option 4)
