**Reiny**, Sunday, June 19, 2011 at 8:52amlet the ladder reach h m high on the wall, let the base angle be Ų

sinŲ = h/5

h = 5sinŲ

dh/dt = 5cosŲ dŲ/dt

given: dh/dt = -10m/sec

when base = 2m, cosŲ = 2/5

-10 = 5(2/5) dŲ/dt

dŲ/dt = -5 radians/sec

the angle is decreasing at a rate of 5 radians / sec

(by using the word "decreasing" I do not include the negative sign)
