Determine the shear-force and bending-moment equations for the beam?

 Share this thread:
 P: 5 Determine the shear-force and bending-moment equations for the beam. Then sketch the diagrams using the aforementioned equations if necessary to ascertain key points in the diagrams, such as the position between the supports where V=0. What is the bending moment there? The following is the figure and how I drew the Free Body Diagram. Remember, I only neglected the Coupled-Forces, not the m0ment they cause. http://s1267.beta.photobucket.com/us...ent-1.png.html I found: W = 180 N Ay = 60 N By = 1120 N No need for the sketching part, I can do that. Just need help with the equations. Any help is greatly appreciated.
 Emeritus Sci Advisor HW Helper Thanks PF Gold P: 6,530 By their nature, simple supports can transmit forces but are incapable of transmitting any moments. What specific problems are you having with the equations?
