Consider the two block system in the image. One block ($\text{mass} = 4m$) is sitting on a table connected by a rope over a pulley to another block ($\text{mass} = 3m$) hanging in the air. There is a frictional force between the block resting on the table and the table.

What frictional force, $f$, is needed for the system to remain in equilibrium once released?


$f = 3mg$


$f = mg$


$f = 3mg - 7ma$


$f = 4ma$
