## Question:

Find the point load equivalent to the parabolic distributed load shown. The load is parabolic with maximum load equal to 500 lb/ft. The dimensions on the beam are a = 4 ft, b = 4 ft, and c = 2 ft. What are the reactions at the wall?

## Vector Quantities & Scalar Quantities:

Vector quantities are those that have not only magnitude (size) but also direction, for example, acceleration, displacement, force, momentum, and velocity. By comparison, scalar quantities are those that are characterized by their magnitude only.
