Shear and bending moments

  1. Oct 9, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    draw/find the shear and bending moment diagrams of:

    2. Relevant equations
    V : shear
    M : bending moment
    ω : distributed load
    3. The attempt at a solution
    i already understood how the solution worked but i can't quite understand how the equations with the boxes were derived
