Reaction Forces in a Cantilever Beam
Diagram Of Awning
The awning shown in the diagram to the right is attached to the wall of a shop, it is 5 metres long with a sign hanging off it at a distance of 4 metres from the wall. The sign is estimated to weigh 25kg.
assuming that the awning behaves like a cantilever beam, and that the acceleration due to gravity is 9.81 m/s
A) Draw a Free Body Diagram of the awning, and
B) calculate the reaction forces the wall exerts on the awning.
