Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Min on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 1:24am.

A 90N dog climbs up a non-uniform (lambda = Cx^(3/2)), 100N ladder. The top of the ladder rests on the top of a frictionless fence that is 3m high and forms a 30 degree angle with the ground, which is rough and has a coefficient of friction of 0.60. How far up the ladder can the dog go before the ladder begins to slip?

I found the ladder to be 6m and the center of mass to be at 4.29m. I'm confused as to how to incorporate the center of mass into the problem. Thanks in advance!
