Chapter 12 12.5 In the figure, a uniform sphere of mass m = 0.85 kg and radius r = 4.2 cm is held in place by a massless rope attached to a frictionless wall of distance L = 8.0 cm above the center of the sphere. Find (a) the Tension in the cord and (b) the force of the sphere from the wall m N T q L tan θ = r L θ = tan 1 ( r L ) = 27.70 ° ydirection 0 = T cos θ mg T = mg cos θ = 9.41 N x direction 0 = N T sin θ N = T sin θ = 4.373 N 12.9 A 75 kg window cleaner uses a 10 kg ladder that is 5.0 m long. He places one end on the ground 2.5 m from a a wall, rests the upper end against a cracked window and climbs the ladder. He is 3m up along the ladder when the window breaks. Neglect friction between the ladder and window and assume that the base of the ladder does not slip. When the window is on the verge of breaking, what are (a) the magnitude of the force on the window from the ladder, (b) the magnitude of the force on the ladder from the ground and (c)the angle (relative to the horizontal of that force on the ladder. We definitely need a picture for this problem.

    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.
