Hey Guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I wanted to know if anyone knew the proof for the Simply supported beam with central load formula; w_{max}= F*L^3 / (48*E*I). I have looked some soureces up, such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler–Bernoulli_beam_theory , but i dont really understand how they ended up with that formula for the maximum deflection. Can anyone explain how they ended up with that formula?
