## Second Moment of Aria

Question:

How do you work out the second moment of aria for a hollow square beam?

Attempt:

I have looked over my notes and it says how to get the second moment of aria for all beams but a hollow square one. It has I beam, Circulare beams, Rectangular.......

How do you go about working it out for a hollow square beam?

 Recognitions: Science Advisor Basically you just take the area moment of a solid square 100mm a side and subtract off the inside.
 thanx. So does that mean I would work out (100mm x 100mm) - (70mm x 70mm) and us that as the aria in the formula or work out the Moment of aria for the 100mm x 100mm and take off the moment of aria for a 70mmx70mm square?
