Homework Help: Slope and displacement of a triangle beam

  1. Feb 8, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have attached a picture of the problem.

    2. Relevant equations
    Singularity functions?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So I am an electrical engineering student and got this mechanics course this semester and the teacher hasnt really explained anything, its almost like he thinks we all have mechanics background or something.

    If somebody could point me in the right direction that would be great. I think I might need to split the beam into 2 right angel triangles? I really have no idea about this stuff and I have been searching online for awhile. Thanks!
