1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data i'm having problem of understanding the formula of area of moment of uniformly distributed load and uniformly varying load... the shape of graph for moment of uniformly distributed load and uniformly varying load.are similar,right? http://www.mathalino.com/reviewer/mechanics-and-strength-of-materials/moment-diagrams-by-parts 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So, the formula of area of moment should be the same? why for uniformly distributed load , it is (1/6)(w)(L^3),while for uniformly varying load.is (1/24)(w)(L^3) ?
