50ft beam... 6000lbs center load... modulus is 29,000,000.... mom of inertia is 850in^4... connected by simple pin on each end

 

 

how much will it deflect?

The material isn't important because he gave all the variables you need to calculate. Based on the modulus though, it is steel.

To answer the question...

deflection=PL^3/48EI, so the answer is 1.1 inches.
