 P: 61 problem: ladder is leaning against the wall. There is friction between ladder and wall - f1 and there is friction between ladder and ground - f2 what is the minimal angle between ladder and ground that ladder doesn't fall down. I though it's easy, but then i realized it's not only about force - it's also about "circle motion" (you know what i mean). I dont know hot to solve it. tell me if my description itn's clear so i'll make picture.
 Sci Advisor HW Helper Thanks P: 26,148 Hi hellbike! You need to very carefully give names to the horizontal and vertical components of all the forces, and then balance the horizontal and vertical components (separately), and also take moments about some suitable point.
