### Calculate the maximum bending moments in the beam?

The
maximum bending moment is located at the point where shear is
zero. This occurs because shear is the mathematical derivative of
bending moment, and the
maximum bending moment occurs when its derivative (i.e. Shear)
is zero.

### Why shear force and bending moment is zero in trusses?

An ideal truss has pin joint connections, allowing laod to be
taken only in tension and not in bending or shear.
In reality, truss joints are not pinned, and do carry some
moment and shear, but because tensile stiffness dominates, the
moments and shears are small and called secondary.

### How do engineers apply physics in constructing bridges and buildings?

Physics is an integral part of structural engineering. Using the
concept of moment and force balance, bending moment and shear
stress is determined for every structural member. According to
value of bending moment and shear stress further designing of
member is done like how much cross section, steel, clear cover etc
is required. So basically the force/moment balance is the basic
physics that civil engineering apply for determining the
stresses/moment at each member.
