## Homework Statement

A 10m ladder whose weight is 180N is placed against a smooth vertical wall. A person whose weight is 652N stands on the ladder a distance of 3.2m up the ladder. The foot of the ladder rests on the floor 5.7m from the wall. What is the force exerted by the wall? What is the force exerted by the floor? (Answers in N)

## Homework Equations

Static Equilibrium, so Sum of Torques=0, Sum of Forces in the y-direction=0, and Sum of forces in the x-direction=0

I think the two answers should be the same, because they are the only two forces acting in the x-direction.
