## Linear relationship Load - Deflection

It would be helpful to highlight there is a linear relationship between the load and deflection. --188.167.156.157 (talk) 09:26, 9 December 2016 (UTC)Martin Medved

fB = F·L3 / (3·E·I) φB = F·L2 / (2·E·I)

It would be helpful to identify "f" and "B" in this equation.

## Units

Could someone add the units to the formula ? I tried my best but can not found the SI unit for Elasticity modulus ?_? 2A01:E35:8B31:3450:B982:FF4E:558A:854F (talk) 20:19, 27 March 2015 (UTC)

Image under topic "End Load Cantilever Beams" shows a beam in mode 6 vibration, which is quite different from the deflection of an "end-loaded" beam. 209.254.20.114 (talk) 22:46, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. Hermanoere (talk) 23:31, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
