How do you calculate theoretical deflections for an experiment on unsymmetrical bending of a cantilever beam & what are the units to be used for young's modulus, length, force and 2nd moment area of used for the equation used to calculate deflection?

All this depends on the cross section of the cantilever and how it is supported then you build the theoretical model. Units of Young’s Modulus are Pa ie pressure N/m^2 And 2nd moment of area is m^4 again depends on the X-sectional area. Your question is too general so you need to be more specific
