The beam AB, which lies on the ground, supports the parabolic load shown. Assuming the upward reaction of the ground to be uniformly distributed, (a) write the equations of the shear and bending-moment curves, (b) determine the maximum bending moment.

BE 1500 – Fall 2016 HW 4 Due: 9/29/16 (1:30 P.M.) 1. Write a function file that determines the following sum (for all odd n from 1 to 11) using a for loop. The starting point, ending point, and increment should be input to the function file. 2n+2 y=Σ n−2 function [sum1]=HW5P1(a,b,c) sum1=0; for i=a:b:c sum1=sum1+(2^(i+2))/(i-2); end 2 points 0.25 for correct function header 0.25 for comments 0.5 for initializing sum 0.5 for correct for statement 0.5 for correct sum1 statement 2.
