Consider the 52.0-kg mountain climber in
the figure to the right. Find (a) the tension
in the rope and (b) the force that the
mountain climber must exert with her feet
on the vertical rock face to remain
stationary. Assume that the force is exerted
parallel to her legs. Also, assume negligible
force exerted by her arms. (c) What is the minimum coefficient
of friction between her shoes and the cliff
