A 12 m long uniform ladder, weighing 285 N, leans against the wall. The foot of the ladder is 6.5 m away from the wall. Determine the reaction components and the resultant reaction(magnitude & direction) if the coefficient of friction for static at the wall and the floor are 0.40 and 0.52 respectively.
The Attempt at a Solution
our prof. didn't tell us what is reaction components and resultant reaction so I can't start answering...
