# Beam – Bending Moment

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Problem: For the beam according to the image, solve graphical and analytical:

1.) Reactions in the supports,

2.) Bending moment diagram,

3.) Maximum bending moment

Given variables:

F = 14 kN

q = 40 N/cm

a = 100 cm

b = 55 cm

l = 180 cm

**2. Relevant equations**

Sorry for my terminology, I am doing physics in another language.

I am having a lot of trouble with the solving of this problem. What really confuses me is the UDL (I hope this is the correct terminology) that isnt over the entire beam, but hangs off on the left side.

I can’t find any problems in my book that solve this kind of problem, and the professor didn’t go into detail.

**3. The attempt at a solution**

My attempt at this was trying to figure out the force F[itex]_{q}[/itex], with: F[itex]_{q}[/itex] = q*l => 40 * 280 = 11200 N/cm, 112 N/m, 0,112 kN/m

And assuming that the above is correct, which I do not know, I can go ahead and find F[itex]_{A}[/itex] and F[itex]_{B}[/itex]
