## Homework Statement

Calculate the magnitude of the bending moment and shear forces at the centre of the beam shown in the attached figure

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

For the shear forces I think its the sum of the vertical components,

Bending moment = not quite sure.

I would appreciate if someone could give me a few pointers on bending moments and shear forces. Have looked over some textbooks but it really isn't explained well. Appreciate ANY help.
