1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Draw the shear and moment diagrams for the loaded beam. Then answer the questions. The distance x is measured from point A to the right. I have attached an image of the problem. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I've managed to answer everything but the maximum bending moment correctly. What I've tried is to take a FBD of the beam from point A to somewhere in the region where the 570 lb/ft force acts. Then knowing that Ay = 1795.5 lb and that V =0 (V is the shear force) I calculated ƩMA=0 0 = -(570 lb/ft)(3.15 ft)(6.3 + 3.15) + M M = 33934.95 lb/ft But it says my answer is wrong and I'm at a loss as to what I'm doing wrong. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
