 Sci Advisor P: 1,497 Well, you don't have a pure moment load. You have an applied shear load, which will then cause a moment. I assume you're looking at the Appendix, Table A-9.4 Cantilever - moment load. If you notice, it shows the reaction force at the fixed support $$R_1 = 0$$. You will surely have a reaction. I don't see any cases in there which match yours. You may have to do this the ol' fashioned way, through integration. Are you familiar with shear/moment diagrams and analytic methods for calculating these things?
