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

Relationships:
————–
R1 = R2 = w * l / 2
V = w * l / 2 – (w * x)
M = (w * x) / 2 * (l – x)
y = (w * x) / (24 * E * I) * (2 * l * x^2 – x^3 – l^3)
ymax = -(5 * w * l^4)/(384 * E * I)
