A uniform 6.74 m long ladder of mass 15.6 kg leans against a smooth wall (so the force exerted by the wall, FW, is perpendicular to the wall). The ladder makes an angle = 71.4° with respect to horizontal (see figure below), and the ground is rough.

Calculate the x component of the force exerted by the ground on

the ladder at its base (+x is to the right).

Any tips would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks...
