Beam Deflection A simply supported beam is 64 feet long and has a load at the center (see figure). The deflection (bending) of the beam at its center is 1 inch. The shape of the deflected beam is parabolic. (a) Find an equation of the parabola. (Assume that the origin is at the center of the beam.) (b) How far from the center of the beam is the deflection equal to inch?

Lecture 9: Continuity (Sections 2.4 and 2.8) Def. Aunin f is continuous at a number c if x→c f(x)= If f is deﬁned on an open interval including x = c but is not continuous there, then f is discontinuous...
