Question

Suppose a ladder of length L = 8 m and mass m = 20 kg is leaning up against a wall such that it makes an angle of θ = 70 degree angle with the floor and is not moving. For this problem, we'll say there is no one standing on the ladder. As we did at the end of discussion, we'll also imagine that the ladder is up against a very smooth wall so that there is no frictional force exerted on the ladder by the wall, but there is a frictional force between the bottom of the ladder and the floor. What is the magnitude of the fictional force between the ladder and the floor?

A L = 13.2 m ladder whose weight is mg = 230 N is placed against
a smooth vertical wall. A person whose weight is Mg = 470 N stands
on the ladder a distance d = 2.9 m up the ladder. The ladder makes
an angle of θ = 35° with the vertical.

A young lady (m=45kg) ascends a ladder 12m (M=30kg) positioned
against a wall. The ladder makes an angle of θ=70 with the ground
as seen in the diagram. The coefficient of static friction between
the ladder and ground is 0.25 and b/t the ladder and wall is
smooth. Determine how high up the ladder she can ascend before the
ladder slips.

A uniform ladder of length L and weight w is leaning against a
vertical wall. The coefficient of static friction between the
ladder and the floor is the same as that between the ladder and the
wall. If this coefficient of static friction is μs = 0.370,
determine the smallest angle the ladder can make with the floor
without slipping.

A ladder of length 15.0 m and of mass 45.0kg is leaning against
a frictionless building wall. An85.0-kg person standing on the
ladder, 1.00 m from its top end, asks his friend to stand on one of
the lower rungs to prevent the ladder from slipping. If the
friend’s mass is 65.0 kg, where should he stand to keep the entire
system in equilibrium? The coefficient of friction between the
ladder and the ground is 0.300, and the angle that...

A ladder whose length L is 12 m and mass m are 45 kg rests
against a wall. Its upper end is a distance h of 9.3 m above the
ground. The center of mass of the ladder is one-third of the way up

until his center of mass is halfway up. Assume the wall but not the
ground is frictionless. What forces are exerted on...
