A 15 kg uniform ladder leans againt a wall in the atrium of a large hotel. The ladder is 8m long, and it makes an angle as 60 degree with the floor. The coefficient of static friction between the floor and the ladder is u+ 0.45. Assume the wall is frictionless.

a) How far along the ladder can a 60kg painter climb before the ladder starts to slip?

b) Therefore, at where height above the ground can the same painter climb before the ladder starts to slip ?
