A simply supported beam of length $$2L$$ is subjected to a moment $$M$$ at the mid-point $$x = 0$$ as shown in the figure. The deflection in the domain $$0 \le x \le L$$ is given by
$$$W = {{ - Mx} \over {12EIL}}\left( {L - x} \right)\left( {x + c} \right)$$$

Where $$E$$ is the Young’s modulus, $$I$$ is the area moment of inertia and $$c$$ is a constant (to be determined).

The slope at the center $$X=0$$ is
