Use a sketch to illustrate what cantilever bending is and give an everyday example of it.

(b) use a sketch to illustrate what three-point bending is and give an everyday example of it.

(c) For each of the two beams shown below:

(i) calculate the maximum magnitude of the bending moment

(ii) calculate the maximum magnitude of the shear force

(iii) draw a bending moment diagram

(iv) draw shear force diagram
