1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I have the statement, variables and given/known data in the picture along with relevant equations and solution attempt. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think I did the first part right. But I'm unsure about part B. The distance between the plate t is different between the stationary plate above than the distance below the plate to the stationary plate. Computing using the different distances give me a different value. I'm unsure what I'm doing wrong or what assumption is incorrect. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :]

I was thinking maybe the shear isn't the same on both sides of the plate in part b?
