For the cantilever beam and loading shown, determine the deflection and slope at point B. Use E = 29,000,000 psi.
See the attached file.
A beam under load deflects and bends. If the deflection of the beam is given by the displacement function v in terms of location x, from calculus we conclude that the curvature K of the beam is given
K ≈ (d2v/dx2)
We have to fine the deflection v(x) and the slope (dv/dx) of the cantilever beam.
From the study of pure bending we know the relation between the radius of curvature and the applied bending moment to be given by ...
