Abstract
If a beam is supported at two points, and a load is applied anywhere on the beam,the resulting deformation can be mathematically estimated. Due to improper experimental setup, the actual results experienced varied substantially when comparedagainst the theoretical values. The following procedure explains how the theoretical andactual values were determined, as well as suggestions for improving upon the experiment.The percent error remained relatively small, around 10%, for locations close to supports.As much as 30% error was experienced when analyzing positions closer to the center of the beam.2
