This problem has been solved! See the answer A 21.5 kg person climbs up a uniform 85 N ladder. The upper end of the ladder rests on a frictionless wall. The bottom of the ladder rests on a floor with a rough surface. The angle between the horizontal and the ladder is 59 ◦. The person can climb 78 % up the ladder before the base of the ladder slips on the floor. What is the coefficient of static friction µs between the base of the ladder and the floor? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8m/s 2 .
