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
