A block of mass M is pulled along a horizontal frictionless surface by a rope of mass m. If a force P is applied at the free end of the rope, the force exerted by the rope on the block will be

\[(a)\;P \quad (b)\;\frac{Pm}{M+m} \quad (c)\;\frac{mp}{M+m} \quad(d)\;\frac{MP}{M+m}\]

Can you answer this question?

Acceleration of system $=\large\frac{P}{M+m}$
Force on the block= Mass of block $\times$ acceleration of system
$\qquad= M \times \large\frac{P}{M+m}$
Hence d is the correct answer.
