I am trying to work out the Shear force and bending moments in a simple cantilever bean with a point load and a U.D.L but am not sure of the equations or how to go about starting it. Its a 2 m long cantilever beam built into a wall at the right-hand end, Point C. A UDL is applied with a downward force of 4 kN/m at Point B (which is 0.8 m from the free end) to the wall. An upward force of 2 kN is applied to the free (left-hand) end, Point A.

2. Relevant equations

I presume you have to use equations for equilibrium but am not sure how to apply them.

3. The attempt at a solution
