(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I'm given a 4m long beam that is fixed to a wall at the left end and is free on the other end. There is an external 50KN*m clockwise moment acting on the free end. I need to know the slope and deflection of the free end.

2. Relevant equations

d^{2}y/dx^{2}=M/EI

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the reaction moment at the fixed support is 50KN*m. There are no x or y direction components, so all I have to work with are the moments. When I pass a section through the beam, how do I get my equation together from there?

The answers are supposed to be .0174rad and 34.8 mm
