Nomenclature:
R = Reaction force
V = Shear force
F = Loading force
M = Moment
l = beam length
x = location
E = Modulus of elasticity
I = Moment if Inertia
y = deflection

Relationships:

R1 = V = F
M1 = -F * l
M = F * (x – l)
y = (F * x^2)/(6 * E * I) * (x – 3 * l)
ymax = -(F * l^3)/(3 * E * I) at x = l
