Asked by Abdullah on 25 Feb 2013

For a horizontal cantilever of length l, with load w per unit length, the equation for bending is:

d2y w EI 2 = (l − x) 2 dx 2

terms of x.

L=10m, E=210x109, I=bd3/12, b=d=0.1m, w=2kN/m,

Hence find the value of y when x=l.

where E, I, w and l are constants. `If y=0 and dy/dx=0 at x=0`, find y in
terms of x.

L=10m, E=210x109, I=bd3/12, b=d=0.1m, w=2kN/m,

Hence find the value of y when x=l.

Are you coding with Matlab?

It seems likely to me that parts of it have been transcribed incorrectly. For example probably bd3/12 is intended to me (b*d^3)/12

Could you please give the link to the some web page where in which the formula is clearly given...

This is the Euler-Bernoulli beam equation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler%E2%80%93Bernoulli_beam_theory

The OP is trying to solve

It does not look like the OP is interested in answering the questions for clarifications.
