For a 4x4 beam 12' long supported by 4x4 8' tall colums I need to calculate the moment around A and B and the vertical forces at A and B based off the point load which for discussion purposes is in the middle of the beam but could be anywhere on the beam. Does anyone know the calculations? I understand the point load may be on the heavy side at 10000kn.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is a link to a diagram of what I am referring to here (Points A & B):
