# Reaction Force of Uniform Ladder

Not what you're looking for?

An 8 m long, 12kg, uniform ladder leans against a frictionless wall making an angle of 65 degrees with the floor. A 75 kg person is able to climb to the 7 m mark on the ladder before it slips. What is the reaction force on the ground?

##### Solution Summary

This solution calculates the reaction force on the ground when an 8 m long, 12kg, uniform ladder leans against a frictionless wall making an angle of 65 degrees with the floor and a 75 kg person is able to climb to the 7 m mark on the ladder before it slips.

##### Solution Preview

Since the wall is frictionless there would only be a reaction force normal to the wall.

At the wall the horizontal force=R
---->R
