A small block of mass m is kept at the left end of a larger block of mass M and length L which is on a horizontal surface such that the system can slide.The system is started towards right with an initial velocity v.The friction coefficient between the surface and the larger block is x and the friction coefficient between the blocks is x/2.Find the time elapsed before the smaller block separates from the bigger block.(sir please show the steps in details)

Dear student,
Please tell me how much is the force acting on the system, or is the system moving with an uniform motion, then we can find the net force acting on the smaller block.
Thanks & Regards
