It is loaded in the vertical plane (yz) with a uniformly distributed load of intensity w/unit length. The tip of the beam is hinged to a horizontal link which constrains it to move in the vertical direction only (provided that the actual deflections are small). Assuming that the link is rigid, and that there are no twisting effects, calculate: a. The force in the link; b. The deflection of the tip of the beam. y x z w/unit length C L Cantilever!!!!!!!! @ this END!!!...
