Homework Help: Obtaining force from UDL

  1. Aug 4, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have a tower of height 240mm as shown in the diagram with a uniformly distributed load acting on the RHS. I know the moment, how do I find the force acting on the building?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know the height of the tower, so therefore if I know the force/height I can find the force. Question being, how do I go from the moment to the force per unit height (keeping in mind I do know the moment)
