For the beam shown in Fig. P-668, compute the value of P that will cause the tangent to the elastic curve over support R2 to be horizontal. What will then be the value of EIδ under the 100-lb load?
The middle half of the beam shown in Fig. P-664 has a moment of inertia 1.5 times that of the rest of the beam. Find the midspan deflection. (Hint: Convert the M diagram into an M/EI diagram.)
