Reaction force of ladder against wall

  1. Feb 10, 2010 #1
    Basically I don't know where to even start. Does anyone know a good page that explains this topic? I would be very grateful if someone could provide a solution, but I know that's too much to ask. Thank you very much for your time.

    determine all the forces that affect the ladder.

    Since the ladder doesn't move the horizontal and vertical components of these forces have to cancel as well as the torque around any axis
