Homework Help: Statics problem

  1. Feb 22, 2005 #1
    (i guess this should be easy, but i'm struggling with this section...) I'd appreciate help!

    I'm not quite sure how to do this. I posted the diagram at my web site...the question is also there, but I typed it here just to give you an idea of what it is about. Thanks! The website:


    For this problem establish the x axis with the origin at the left side of the beam and obtain the internal shear and moment as a function of x. Use the results to plot the shear and moment diagrams.

    Draw the shear and moment diagrams for the beam (a) in terms of the parameters shown; (b) set p = 600lb, a = 5ft, b=7ft
