(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given the simple beam in the picture, draw the moment and shear diagram.

point loads = qa

distributed load : q on a lenght of 2a

where M - is the moment, T - is the shear

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I draw the shear diagram, found all the ractions but i'm stuck at the moment diagram.

On section AB, is the qa load giving any moment value? I know that the moment diagram value is the area of the shear diagram, but for example, on AB, the area would be 2qa^2, but the moment value seems to be qa^2. I'm a little confused here.

What i did so far is in the attachament.
