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?
I used the rectangle equation and parallel axis theorem
That should work!
When it says XY is the bending plane, but we are looking for I_ZZ, is XY the neutral axis or is it XZ?
Hint: The deflection is going to be in y. So you want to calculate the resistance to bending about the Z axis.
