Question
A 30m ladder, weighing 100N, with a center of mass one-third of the way up from the bottom, rests against a smooth wall making an angle of 60degrees with the ground. The coefficient of friction between ground and ladder is 0.4. How high can a 150N man climb up the ladder before it begin to slip?
