    1. The problem does not ask you to calculate strains - 6.4 A asks you to compare the magnitude of normal stress at a, b and c. 6.4B asks you to calculate A* and y*.

  1. Remember that the location of the centroid, and thus the neutral axis, is affected by where the most mass is concentrated. This cross-section has a higher concentration of mass near the top, so the centroid would be shifted upwards.
