http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/5889/shear.png [Broken] I'm having trouble drawing the shear diagram on MAsteringEngineering. I'm pretty sure the values are correct too? I got By = 10.5 and Ay = 9.5 V(x) = -2x+9.5 for the distributed load so when I set V=0, I find the x intercept to be 4.75. At x=5, the shear drops to -0.5 and stays at that value until 8. At x=8, V=-10.5. For x=8 to x=10, the shear is constant at -10.5. When x=10, V=10.5, which should place the point on the x axis.
