Homework Help: Question on method of sectioning.

  1. Oct 13, 2008 #1
    I have a load distributed over a bar of 10lbs/in. Can i take a section of that bar (to use method of sections to find the moment in a pin at one end of the bar) and still apply the resultant of the distributed load? or must i use only part of the distributed load?
