Problem 17PE

To get up on the roof, a person (mass 70.0 kg) places a 6.00-m aluminum ladder (mass 10.0 kg) against the house on a concrete pad with the base of the ladder 2.00 m from the house. The ladder rests against a plastic rain gutter, which we can assume to be frictionless. The center of mass of the ladder is 2 m from the bottom. The person is standing 3 m from the bottom. What are the magnitudes of the forces on the ladder at the top and bottom?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 17PE Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 6 The ladder is in equilibrium, so the net torques at top and bottom of the rod should be zero.
