Cantilever Beam with Concentrated Load at the end:
A cantilever beam is subjected to a concentrated load W at the free end, it is required to determine the deflection of the beam

In order to solve this problem, consider any X-section X-X located at a distance x from the left end or the reference, and write down the expressions for the shear force abd the bending moment

The constants A and B are required to be found out by utilizing the boundary conditions as defined below

i.e at x= L ; y= 0          -------------------- (1)

at x = L ; dy/dx = 0      -------------------- (2)

Utilizing the second condition, the value of constant A is obtained as
