A uniform ladder rests against a frictionless wall at an angle of
θ = 50.0°
with respect to the ground. If the weight of the ladder is
WL = 250 N,
the length is
L = 9.0 m,
and the coefficient of static friction between the ladder and the ground is
μs = 0.65,
determine the distance a man with a weight of
WM = 800 N
can climb along the ladder before the ladder begins to slip.
