Hello Every one, well i have a question regarding the Fixed End moments, if we had a Horozontally Fixed End supported Beam, with equally distributed load (W) on the beam, and we require the moment at the fixed Ends, which Equation would i use:

2. Relevant equations

1: WL^{2}/12

2:WL/12

3. The attempt at a solution

my search did not give me a clear difference betwen the two, for Equation "1" this google book search :http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...0CB4Q6AEwAw#v=onepage&q=wL/12 moment&f=false" , its a book called "Structure and architecture"

By Angus J. MacDonald page 143, and for equation "2" pretty much every thing i learned, well at least i think i did, can someone please calrify the difference,

thank you
