A 6 m long beam BCD shown in Figure Q4 is supported at end B and at its midpoint

C. It is loaded by a point load of 12 kN at end D and by a uniformly distributed load

of 6 kN/m that includes the weight of the beam. The flexural rigidity of the beam is

100 MNM².

Find:

a) the reactions at the simple supports Vв and Vc,

b) the deflection at end D in mm,

c) the slope at end D in degrees.
