Distributed Loads. Simple question

Hi there,

Parallel distributed loads are throwing me off a little at the moment. Is the resultant worked out the same way as for those with distributed loads perpendicular to a beam??

Picture included.

Thanks in advance

An axial distributed load such as you've drawn would have a cumulative effect, so the force at the right end of the beam would be the sum of all forces to its left. In effect, you've drawn a force which increases with position from left to right.
