Moment of beam with three masses

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    q=0.4905 [Nm]
    q2=20 [Nm]
    2. Relevant equations
    How to find the moments?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I looked of a few books in last several hours, but without any success. In every similar problem the moments are given. Only thing I know for sure is that I dont have the all variables to calculate it ...

    Thanks for understanding

    Let's see an attempt which is a must before we can help. Also, how is the beam supported?

    Its supported by thrust by motors at the both sides at the bar...

    I am thinking about a solution but something is missing ... its doesn't feel right...

    The motors are creating thrust 580g, so i have to find the mass center so i can see how the motors effect the bar?

    Am i right ?
