Homework Help: ShearForce & Bending Moment Exp

  1. Feb 5, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Recently Im undergoing such experiment in school
    and my lecturer asked that, as if any changes in the distance(vertically) will there be changes in the force/reading of it?Assuming there is no changes in anything else except the position of the tools.
    (Since the "Cell load" is fixed I was unable to test it over the lab)

    2. Relevant Pictures

    3. The attempt at a solution
    My guess are
    -the force will only change as if there is 90degree to the force applied point
    -since the changes is perpendicular to it, so there will be no effect on it.

    (Sorry for Bad English)
    (I've fail much in my grammar )
