  1. Nov 25, 2008 #1
    This Physics Problem Is driving my crazy i'm hoping someone out there can help me!
    Okay a six-meter ladder is leaning against a wall. The top of the ladder touches the wall five meters above the ground. The mass of the ladder is 14.0 KG. The coefficient of friction between the ladder and the ground is .440. What is the force exerted on the ladder by the ground?
