  1. Jan 11, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/63664351/Physics/MECH1.PNG [Broken]


    2. Relevant equations
    Sum of Forces and Torque = 0


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I found similar problem here: http://farside.ph.utexas.edu/teaching/301/lectures/node133.html
    Why is there no vertical reaction on a ladder standing on the wall?
