now imagine a ladder resting on the ground and the wall
such that it makes a right angled triangle
now if someone walks on the ladder , the part of the ladder resting on the wall is going to have a force pulling it down * the weight of the man *
what is the force pushing the ladder horizontally ?
if F1= F
what is the magnitude of F2 ?
is there even going to be an F2 ?
if this is not a smooth surface
can i just describe F2 as friction ? and it would be in the opposite direction
F1 is the force due to the ladder pushing on the wall
