A person using a ladder supported on vertical wall is 3/4 of the way up the ladder. If the person climbing the ladder has a weight of 980 newtons and the ladder is 4.89 meters long, how far from the wall can the base of the ladder be placed, and not slip? The coefficient of friction between the base of the ladder and the ground is 0.34. Assume that there is no friction between the ladder and the wall and that the ladder is effectively weightless.
