Find the normal and he frictional force at the base.

HELP!!!

lable the forces. At the top of the ladder, you have a horizontal force only pushing intothe wall, and the wall pushing back.

You have on the ladder at center, weight, and the guy 1 m upwards,

You have the base of the ladder, vertical, and friction force.

Now write equilibirum equations.

Sume horizontal forces=0

sum vertical forces =0

sum moment about any point (I recommend the base of the ladder)=0

You will get a solution quickly.
