Homework Help: Calculate beam deflection at 1m intervals

  1. Jan 16, 2012 #1
    Am i right in saying i can use this formulae: -

    W/EI((x^3/12) - (xL^2/16)) + w/EI((Lx^3/12) - (x^4/24) - (xL^3/24))

    please help.

    See attached question. Question aii.

    Furthermore, your units do not appear to be uniform. Show some work or we cannot help.
