Ok here we go again:
I really appreciate your help.
F(fr)=F(w)
F(fr)=mu F(n)
=.4(117)(9.8)
=458.64 N
Thus,
T(wall)=F(w)(L)(sin 65)
=(458.64)(10)(sin65)
=4156.69
Now, I am still lost on T(painter).
1. t=rFsintheta: here is the angle between the...
Here we go:
T(wall)=Fw* L *sin theta
=267.89*10*sin 65
=2427.90
T(ladder)=-22 (9.8) (10/2) (cos 65)
=-455.58
T (painter)= mg (h)
=(95)(-9.8)(h)
=-931h
0=2427.90-455.58-931h
x=2.104 meters
Where did I go wrong?
I used the following formula: sum torque=F(w) * l (sin theta) - mg * L/2 cos theta=0
m=22kg
THis is what I got:
torque=267.89 * 10 * sin 65 - (22)(9.8) * (10/2) (cos 65)
=4674.19 N
What am I missing????

My mistake, I misunderstood you. The formula I found for a long uniform rod was I=1/12(M)(L^2).
For L, so I consider it as 1 meter? Or do I use .5 m?
I am not sure what you mean by parellel axis theorem.
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
