Homework Help: Shear and moment diagrams: help with moment diagram

  1. Sep 29, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    This would be really difficult to type, so I've attached the given problem and my work. I think it is legible for the most part, but let me know if you have problems reading something.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    My shear diagram worked nicely. I've run into a problem with the moment diagram. After I integrated the diagonal line function to get the area under the shear curve, I should have to add 24 kN to get back to 0, but from my previous work, I was at -36.

    Any help in finding my mistake would be appreciated.

    Thank you!
