A simply supported beam has a span of 12 m. The beam carries a total uniformly distributed load of 21.5 kN/m. 1. To prevent excessive deflection, a support is added at midspan. Calculate the resulting moment (kN·m) at the added support.
2. Calculate the resulting maximum positive moment (kN·m) when a support is added at midspan.
3. Calculate the reaction (kN) at the added support.

You can take this quiz as many times as you wish. Solution to problems will not be shown but a feedback at the end of the quiz will be given wether you are correct or not for each problem. Unlike the previous quiz that we only keep your highest score, we will keep all your records in this quiz. Good luck and enjoy!
A 12-m pole is fixed at its base and is subjected to uniform lateral load of 600 N/m. The pole is made-up of hollow steel tube 273 mm in outside diameter and 9 mm thick.
1. Calculate the maximum shear stress (MPa).
2. Calculate the maximum tensile stress (MPa).
3. Calculate the force (kN) required at the free end to restrain the displacement.
The side of a square is 10 m. A second square is formed by joining, in the proper order, the midpoints of the sides of the first square. A third square is formed by joining the midpoints of the second square, and so on. Find the sum of the areas of all the squares if the process will continue indefinitely.
A new kind of atom smasher is to be composed of two tangents and a circular arc which is concave toward the point of intersection of the two tangents. Each tangent and the arc of the circle is 1 mile long, what is the radius of the circle? Use 1 mile = 5280 ft.
An equilateral triangle is inscribed within a circle whose diameter is 12 cm. In this triangle a circle is inscribed; and in this circle, another equilateral triangle is inscribed; and so on indefinitely. Find the sum of the areas of all the triangles.
