Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm taking a Structures course in University and are learning about Freebody diagrams and figuring out Reaction forces (magnitude, direction, sense etc) and have a very basic question. Can someone please tell me how to convert a uniformly varying load into a concentrated point load, and how does one figure out at which point on the member to place this concentrated point load? i've attached a scan from my book but it doesn't show how to derive the point load. appreciate thanks.

I do know how to convert a uniform load into a concentrated point load.

Also if anyone would like to tutor me in Structures, (i will reimburse in an hourly basis or we could work out a deal), please let me know? I'm having difficulty in my Structures class, and desperately need to pass it and would like to have a tutor who I can depend on to have questions that I may have answered. thanks
