Related Rate: Ladder Problem

A ladder 10 ft long rests against a vertical wall. If the bottom of the ladder slides away from the wall at a rate of 0.6 ft/s, how fast is the angle between the ladder and the ground changing when the bottom of the ladder is 6 ft from the wall? (That is, find the angle's rate of change when the bottom of the ladder is 6 ft from the wall.)
