can anyone answer this for me? There was a steel beam 50 feet long. The entire Skeith construction crew (total weight: 6000 pounds) was standing at the center of the beam. Assume the modulus of elasticity is 29,000,000 pounds per square inch, the moment of inertia is 850 inches^4, the beam has simple pin connections at either end, and all loads other than the weight of the crew are disregarded.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How much will the beam deflect? Please round to the nearest tenth of an inch.
