Homework Help: How was the max deflection formula derived?

  1. Jun 13, 2008 #1
    does anyone know how the formula for calculating max deflection was derived? The formula is (Force x Length^3)/(48 x E x I). I think it was through intergration but if anyone knows more could you please let me know? thanks!! :)
