- Homework Statement
- A foldable step ladder weighing 150 𝑁 is made of two halves connected by a pivot on top and

by a rope in the middle. The ladder is put on ice and its angle with the surface is 60°. What is

the tension of the rope?

- Relevant Equations
- net torque = zero

tried equating torques around the pivots of the ladder and equating them to zero but I'm not getting anywhere with that.
