in a question i am solving, i am asked to plot the stress in a beam as a function of the moment,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but as far as i know, or at least in all the other questions i have solved, i have been asked to plot the strains/stress as a function of my placement (y). could this be a mistake or is this a legitimate question to ask,

when plotting sigma(m) do i take y as a constant, then i will have a linear graph and my slant will be -Y/(I) ??
