1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A uniform ladder of weight WL and length L has its top against a vertical wall with friction coefficient μW and its foot on a smooth horizontal floor. A rope is attached to the foot of the ladder and secured to the base of the wall, with the ladder making an angle α with the horizontal. If a man of weight WM climbs the ladder, determine the tension in the rope when the man has climbed a distance d up the ladder. What is the maximum tension in the rope? 2. Relevant equations F=ma, applied to the contact with the wall, the floor and rope. 3. The attempt at a solution So i know i have to use the moments of a force about a point, and that point doesnt matter, but itd be really helpful to show me which one is the easiest from a solving purpose. I need help with the maximum tension in the rope part, cant think of anything to be honest.
