I'm not sure the formula to use to calculate the deflection of a beam. Here's the information I have got.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Steel beam is 50 feet long. There is a 6,000 pound load in the middle(all other loads are disregarded. The modulus of elasticity is 29,000,000 psi. Moment of inertia is 850 inches^4. There are simple pin connections at either end.

What would be the formula for calculating this?? :D An answer would be nice to lol
