Homework Help: Distributive Load - quick question

  1. Nov 20, 2007 #1
    I am working on a distributive load problem involving two different functions on a graph that join together at a common point (one is half of a parabola, the other is a general y=mx+b line)

    To find Fr, I know that I integrate each equation independently with respect to the variable (in this case, x) and then evaluate at their X values on the given graph.

    To find Xr, I believe that I integrate each equation independently AGAIN (integral of an integral), evaluate at the same X values as before, add, and then divide by Fr.

    Does this sound right? I seemed to have misplaced my book today, otherwise I wouldn't try to bother anyone.

    Thank you for your help!!
