# Cantilever Beam?

## Answer

A cantilever beam is supported on only one end and it transfers the load to the support where it has managed the moment of force and shear stress. Moment of force is the ability of a force to twist or rotate an object. Shear stress is a stress which is used parallel to the face of a material.
