Bending moments at any point along the span of a uniformly loaded cantilevered beam

Description

A cantilever is a beam anchored at only one end. The beam carries the load to the support where it is forced against by a moment and shear stress. A bending moment is the reaction induced in a structural element when an external force or moment is applied to the element causing the element to bend. The bending moment at any point along the span of a uniformly loaded cantilevered beam can be calculated by the uniform load on the beam (force per unit length) and the length of the beam.
