Worksheet: Leaning Ladder A 5.0 m long ladder with mass m = 12.0 kg leans against a smooth wall at a point 4.0 m above a rough floor. Quiz – How many forces are acting on the ladder? Step 1 – Sketch a free body diagram of just the ladder. – What are all the forces acting on the rod? – At which point on the rod does each force act? Step 2 – Choose a coordinate system and apply Newton's 2 nd law (twice).

Worksheet: Leaning Ladder Step 3 – Choose an appropriate axis of rotation and apply Newton's 2 nd law for rotation. – Should we choose an axis at the top or the bottom? Step 4 – Solve for the forces shown: – The horizontal force from the wall – The horizontal force from the ground – The vertical force from the ground Follow-up – Will the ladder stay in place?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
