Here's a lil question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you have a rod of which an end is clamped to a table and you apply a force somewhere on the rod, what will the deflection be (in terms of difference in the height of the other end of the rod? For sure it will be proportional to the force and to some power of the lenght at which it is applied. What would be the complete formula, solved for deflection?
