I was given 2 problems based on statics and I was wondering if anyone could help. Thank you - we just learned the concepts of statics TODAY and were given an assignment immediately, so any help would be appreciated. A window washer attempts to lean a ladder against a frictionless wall. He finds that the ladder slips on the ground when it is placed at an angle of less than 75◦ to the ground but remains in place when the angle is greater than 75◦. Find the coefficient of static friction between the ladder and the ground I know that: To be static, Torque - F(r)sinthetha and that Torque(net) = 0 Coefficient of static friction = F(friction) / Normal I think I might have to split it into components... AND Estimate the magnitude of the force F an average person must apply to a wheelchair’s main wheel to roll up over a sidewalk curb. This main wheel, which is the one that comes in contact with the curb, has a radius r, and the height of the curb is h. I always have trouble with estimation problems. I don't know where to begin.
