Hallo guy,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I hope its not asking too much, but i really need help with this, Urgently.

I have a cantilever, with point load P=100 at the end tip.

A spring(K=500) attached to the cantilever perpendicularly at UNKNOWN position.

I KNOW the deflection at the end tip. and the rest of the parameters, the only thing UNKNOWN is the POSITION where i can place this spring to generate the known deflection at the tip.

Can somebody help me formulate a formula which can help me get this position.

I will appreciate your help guyz, am really stuck on this.

I hope its well understood, if not, i can generate a drawing and attach it.

Thank you guyz.
