Question: "A ladder 10 ft long leans against a vertical wall. If the bottom of the ladder slides away from the base of the wall at a speed of 2 ft/s, how fast is the angle between the ladder and the wall changing when the bottom of the ladder is 6ft from the base of the wall?
Answer: 1/4 rad/s
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
