For the purposes of this problem, assume that the cowboy wraps the rope 3+ times around the hitching rack and then lets the free end of the rope hang down. What is the maximum force that the horse can pull on the rope does not slip? Assume that the free end of the rope has a weight of 0.3 lbs, 0 = 45° and us - 0.4, where [ls is the coefficient of static friction between the rope and the hitching rack.
