A uniform ladder 5.0 m long and weighing 200 N is placed against a very smooth wall so that the lower end of the ladder is 3.0 m from the wall. If the coeficient of friction between the ladder and the ground is 0.50, determine the maximum distance that a 700 N man could climb along the length of the ladder before the ladder slips.
