R1 = R2 = V1 = V2 ..... Reaction force and shear force  equation ..... ..... lbf
Mmax (at point of load) ..... Max moment equation at the point load ..... ..... lbf in
Mx (x < L/2) ..... Moment at point of interest x equation ..... ..... lbf in
Δx(x < L/2) ..... Deflection point x equation ..... ..... in
Δmax (at load point) ..... Maximum Deflection equation at the point load ..... ..... in
