**!!Help Please!! Bending (stuck)**

**1. Homework Statement**

**2. Homework Equations**

[tex]\sigma_{max}=\frac{Mc}{I}[/tex]

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I am not sure where I am messing this up.

I am pretty I found

*I*correctly to be 140.144.

But I think I am using the wrong internal force.

I am going with replacing the distributed load with a concentrated load and getting:

[tex]\sigma_{max}=\frac{4*8*w*c}{I}[/tex]

[tex]\Rightarrow w=\frac{22(10^6)(140.14)}{4*8*5.3}[/tex]

But this is off by many orders of magnitude. It is supposed to be w=1.65 kip/ft

Where am I going wrong
