1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data determine the sheer force and the moment acting at a section passing through point C in the beam. w = 3 kip/ft 2. Relevant equations M = FR 3. The attempt at a solution I am trying to find the force at, "FAY." So I tried to get the moment at B. M = FAY(18) - ?(6) = 0 I am trying to figure out what goes in place of the question mark. I got the length of six by finding my xbar = 18/3. The solution manual I saw gives the force that goes in place of the question mark to be 27 kip. How do I get that?
