Calculation Example – Friction

The friction coefficient is c1=0.2 between two bodies A,B. The friction coefficient is c2=0.18 between body B and the ground. If mass mA=0.5kgr and mB=1kgr , what is the minimum force P so that the two bodies start sliding?(we consider that there is no friction at the rope).
