1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data W= 3kip/ft. Find the shear force and moment at C. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Skipping some initial steps, I found the reactions to be Ax=0 and Ay=9 These are known to be correct. Now, slicing the beam from a to c. I get Ay=9. Now I take 3(1/2)6= 9 from the W equation and I know that this acts at 4ft from A. So then the sum of the forces in the Y direction. V+9-9=0 therefore V=0. This is incorrect. V=3 by the solutions manual but I have no idea how they got that.
