A 10.9-kg monkey climbs a uniform ladder with weight w = 1.24 102 N and length L = 2.70 m as shown in the figure below. The ladder rests against the wall and makes an angle of θ = 60.0° with the ground. The upper and lower ends of the ladder rest on frictionless surfaces. The lower end is connected to the wall by a horizontal rope that is frayed and can support a maximum tension of only 80.0 N.
