Safe Load for a Beam The maximum safe load for a horizontal rectangular beam varies jointly with the width of the beam and the square of the thickness of the beam and inversely with its length. If an 8-foot beam will support up to 750 pounds when the beam is 4 inches wide and 2 inches thick, what is the maximum safe load in a similar beam 10 feet long, 6 inches wide, and 2 inches thick?
