In this problem, are we expected to integrate to find second area moments, or can we just use the given rectangle area moment in the back of the lecturebook? Log in to Reply

When it says XY is the bending plane, but we are looking for I_ZZ, is XY the neutral axis or is it XZ? Log in to Reply

Hint: The deflection is going to be in y. So you want to calculate the resistance to bending about the Z axis. Log in to Reply

I used the rectangle equation and parallel axis theorem

That should work!
