A ladder is leaning against a vertical wall, and both ends of the ladder are at the point of slipping. The coefficient of friction between the ladder and the horizontal surface is μ1 = 0.205 and the coefficient of friction between the ladder and the wall is μ2 = 0.253. Determine the maximum angle with the vertical the ladder can make without falling on the ground.
