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.
