    - At free end, the cantilever beam deflects by maximum angle θ and y is the maximum deflection.

    - The slope and deflection at free end is maximum.

    - The slope and deflection at fixed end is zero.

    - The vertical distance between axis of beam before and after loading at a point is known as deflection.

    - The curvature of bending beam is given as

    θ = (ML) / (2 EI)

    here, EI is the flexural rigidity
