Homework Help: Shear and moment diagram-Need help!

  1. Oct 13, 2009 #1
    Shear and moment diagram--Need help!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    On the attached question:

    Fpy = 10 N
    Ffy = 10 N

    Mp = 0.15 Nm
    Mf = 0.45 Nm

    2. Relevant equations

    Draw the shear and moment diagrams.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    If you look at the answer I posted, I believe the shear diagram (top) is correct. I'm not sure about the shape of the moment diagram though. Perhaps it would slope to zero on both ends. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    We would not know, because you did not show the supports on your first diagram.
