(a) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the force on each foot of the horse in Figure 9.31 (two are on the ground), assuming the center of mass of the horse is midway between the feet. The total mass of the horse and rider is 500kg. (b) What is the minimum coefficient of friction between the hooves and ground? Note that the force exerted by the wall is horizontal.
Solution 8PE Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 4 Refer figure 9.31 given in textbook. There are two conditions for equilibrium, And, Here, is the net force and is net torque. Step 2 of 4 (a) The free body diagram for system is shown below,
