Question:

Determine the internal forces (shear, axial and moment) at the midpoint of the loaded beam ( 10 ft from the left end). Include a free-body diagram in your solution. {eq}A_{y} {/eq} = 2500 lb (up). {eq}B_{y} {/eq} = 2500 lb (up)

Moment

The tendency of the force acting on the object to rotate the object about an axis is known as the moment. It is measured in the terms is Newton meter. The moment is the product of the force applied to the object to the perpendicular distance.
