Part 1) A ladder rests against a vertical wall. There is no friction between the wall and the ladder. The coefficient of static friction between the ladder and the ground is µ = 0.599 .

Consider the following expressions: A1: f = Fw A2: f = Fw sin θ B1: N = W 2 B2: N = W C1: ℓ Fw sin θ = 2 Fw cos θ C2: ℓ Fw sin θ = ℓ W cos θ C3: ℓ Fw sin θ = 1 2 ℓ W cos θ , where f: force of friction between the ladder and the ground, Fw: normal force on the ladder due to the wall, θ: angle between the ladder and the ground, N: normal force on the ladder due to the ground, W: weight of the ladder, and ℓ: length of the ladder.
