**Q.**In the figure, a ladder of mass m is shown leaning against a wall. It is in static equilibrium making an angle θ with the horizontal floor. The coefficient of friction between the wall and the ladder is μ and that between the floor and the ladder is μ2. The normal reaction of the wall on the ladder is N1 and that of the floor is N2. If the ladder is about to slip, then

**Q.**

A solid cylinder of mass m = 4 kg and radius R = 10 cm has two ropes wrapped around it, one near each end. The cylinder is held horizontally by fixing the two free ends of the cords to the hooks on the ceiling such that both the cords are exactly vertical. The cylinder is released to fall under gravity. Find the tension in the cords when they unwind and the linear acceleration of the cylinder.
