Bending Moment question

Announcements Posted on
  1. Offline

    How do I work out the points of maximum bending moment for these three systems by using that differentiation method? I know how to differentiate, I just don't know how to work out the equations.

    I know when dM/dx = 0 it's a point of maximum bending moment. How do I get the equation for M?
