Homework Help: Shear force bending moments diagram help?

  1. Oct 10, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    It's number 4 i'm doing


    2. Relevant equations
    ΣmomentA= 0
    ΣFx= 0
    ΣFy= 0

    3. The attempt at a solution

    i've got the correct answers i think, but i'm not sure how to draw the shear force and bending moment diagrams because of the moment that's included. i did draw them but it didn't seem correct because the bending moment diagram never went back to 0.

    Also What is the maximum shear force and how do i work it out it doesn't say anything about it in my book?

    The moment will only appear on the Bending Moment diagram, and just like a concentrated force produces a discontinuity in the shear force diagram, the moment will do the same for the bending moment diagram.
