Homework Help: The moment about the Cantilever beam

  1. Nov 14, 2011 #1
    From the picture,
    Why do this diagram have the force of H? The wall which exert the force of H to the beam?

    V=W that have been known from the questions.
    When V=W, what else of other forces to balance the forces of G and H?

    Besides, the moment should been clockwise moment, then the counterclockwise in the picture that is occurred by which forces and distance?
    :confused:

    thank you very much!:smile:

    The forces at the wall generally denote how the wall reacts to the loaded beam. Therefore only V and the moment would appear.
