    I do not have any engineering background but I am in need to help for solving a engineer problem.

    Please review the following two examples. Let's assume the cylinder object has 0 weight. I would be much appreciated if you could show me the calculation. Thanks.

    look out for ' free body diagrams' this would help you with many such problems.. Its related to the reaction forces exerted by the supports to hold the weight in place!!

    By pressure, I assume you mean the stress, which is the force per unit cross-sectional area of the beam. You cannot solve that without knowing the cross-sectional area, which you have not supplied.

    The stress in the first example will be twice as high in A as in B (assuming the beams are all the same) since in B the force is distributed over two beams.
