# Solution: Find the reactions if reaction A is at the left end and reaction B at the right end

A simply supported beam is 5 meters in length. It carries a uniformly distributed load including its own weight of 300 N/m and a concentrated load of 100 N, 2 meters from the left end. Find the reactions if reaction A is at the left end and reaction B at the right end.

#### Problem Statement: EE Board October 1991

A simply supported beam is 5 meters in length. It carries a uniformly distributed load including its own weight of 300 N/m and a concentrated load of 100 N, 2 meters from the left end. Find the reactions if reaction A is at the left end and reaction B at the right end.

• A. Ra = 810 N & Rb = 700 N
• B. Ra = 700 N & Rb = 800 N
• C. Ra = 810 N & Rb = 780 N
• D. Ra = 700 N & Rb = 810 N

The reactions of the beam is Ra = 810 N & Rb = 700 N.
