3/28/2014 Statics
« on: March 28, 2014, 06:51:39 AM »
Question:

In order to paint the outside of your house, you buy a 24 ft aluminum extension ladder. The ladder weighs 61 pounds, and has rubber caps on the bottom of the legs. You put the base of the ladder on the sidewalk 7.5 feet from the side of your house. Can you safely climb all the way up the ladder? Assume that there is no friction with the side of the house.

Shouldn't the static friction coefficient be given?
