Homework Help: Shear force and Bending moment of a Cantilever Rod

  1. Dec 29, 2011 #1
    1. I have a rod as pictured in the attachment. The rod is at a 45 degree angle.
    The load force is 115.118lbf
    The force is y-direction is 97.954lbf

    The Force at A is 5 inches from Force in the y-direction.
    The force at B is 10.5 inches from the Force in the y-direction

    I need to find the shear forces for A and B and the moment at point C

    I am stuck at the shear forces (V)

    Thanks for the help

    kgprice11: You must list relevant equations yourself, and show your work. And then someone might check your math.

    You will not be able to find the shear forces at A and at B. But you will be able to find the shear force between A and B. Which definition of shear force do you prefer to use? (there are at least two)
