Homework Help: Bending moment and shear force for screw

  1. Feb 28, 2015 #1
    Can someone help me with determining the free body force diagram, and hopefully I can go on from there.

    2. Relevant equations
    M = F.d

    I found T = 500N
    The answers are shear force = -62.5N , Moment = 64.4 Nm , Tension = 500N

    Please show how you arrived at the tension force on the clamp at that point. Determine reactions at the screws before using free body diagram of the clamp. Please show your work attempt.
