Final Exam PROBLEM NO. 5 (cont.) Instructor Part c) — 5 points In many cowboy ﬁlms, one often sees the cowboy get off his horse and wrap a rope
around a horizontal hitching rack to keep the horse from wandering away. 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 ,uS is the coefﬁcient of static
friction between the rope and the hitching rack. Do you think this force is enough to
prevent the horse from wandering away? To Horse / hitching rack \ free end of rope ME 270  Fall 2004 Name
