**Physics-coefficient of friction**

What's the minimum coefficient of friction between the ladder (of length d) and the ground will keep it from slipping? (consider the wall frictionless) (θ=56.5 degrees) I think the formula is supposed to be mg L/2 sin y, but it does not provide a length, nor a mass. ...
