Suppose a horse leans against a wall as in (see attached). Calculate the force exerted on the wall assuming that force is horizontal and using the data in the schematic representation of the situation. Note that the force exerted on the wall is equal and opposite to the force exerted on the horse, keeping it in equilibrium. The total mass of the horse and rider is 825 kg. Take the data to be accurate to three digits.
