Problem 872 Repeat Problem 871 assuming the loadings on the spans are interchanged.

Problem 871 The continuous beam in Figure P-871 is supported at its left end by a spring whose constant is 300 lb/in. For the beam, E = 1.5 × 10^{6} psi and I = 115.2 in.^{4}. Compute the load on the spring and its deflection.

Example 06 The beam in Figure PB-006 is supported at the left by a spring that deflects 1 inch for each 300 lb. For the beam E = 1.5 × 10^{6} psi and I = 144 in^{4}. Compute the deflection of the spring.
