b) Block A of weight 520N rest on the horizontal top of block B having weight 700N as shown in
figure. Block A is tied to a support C by a cable at 300 to the horizontal. Coefficient of friction is 0.4 for
all contact surfaces. Determine the minimum value of the horizontal force P just to move the block B.
